Alice in the Cities
The first screening of the Cinematheque again in January begins with the movie “Alice”. The film, which won the 1976 German Film Critics' Award – Best Film Award, tells the story of the German journalist Philip, who falls into an identity crisis and wanders aimlessly. Described by Wenders as "a very realistic tale", Alice is considered one of the director's most poignant films and is often compared to Charlie Chaplin's The Kid. The movie is also Wenders' first film, albeit a part, to be shot in the US. The film, featuring artists such as Rüdiger Vogler, Yella Rottlander, and Lisa Kreuzer, will be screened on Sunday, January 2.
1978 German Film Awards – Best Film, Best Director, Best Editing Award winner, the film is about the adventure of an American fake collector with a hitman. Starring Dennis Hopper, Bruno Ganz, Nicholas Ray and Lisa Kreuzer, the movie will meet the audience on Sunday, January 9th. The movie is suitable for audiences over the age of 13.
Winner of the 1984 CANNES Palme d'Or, the FIBRESCI Award, the Ecumenical Jury Award and the 1985 BAFTA Award for Best Director, the film tells the story of a man who rejects a civilized and participatory life. Featuring plays such as Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell, and Nastassja Kinski, the movie will meet with moviegoers on Sunday, January 16. The movie is suitable for audiences over the age of 13.
The Going of Things
Winner of the 1983 German Film Festival Best Cinematography Award – Best Feature Award, 1982 Venice Film Festival Best Film Award – FIBRESCI Award winner, the film tells the story of the team that shot the film about survivors in a post-apocalyptic world in Portugal. A highly personal film about filmmaking in Europe and America, The Going of Things is also seen as an examination of the difficulties Wenders faced during the making of Hammett, his first film in America. The film, which will be screened on Sunday, January 23, is suitable for audiences over the age of 13.
Sky Over Berlin
1988 European Film Awards - Best Supporting Actor, Best Film, 1988 French Film Critics Syndicate Awards - Best Foreign Film, 1988 New York Film Critics Circle Awards - Best Cinematography, 1987 Cannes Film Festival - Best Director, 1988 Bavarian Film Awards – Best Director, 1988 Sao Paolo Film Festival Audience Award – Best Director Award winner, “Sky Over Berlin” is a part of the symphonic narratives of major European cities made by pre-1960 cinema. The interior monologues written by Wim Wenders with Peter Handke, the images of Berlin taken from the sky, a tour of the inner worlds of different people instead of a certain flow of stories, suggest a whole Berlin symphony. With this film, Wenders returns to his German career and original themes, which he took a ten-year hiatus. Rock tells about mismatched characters, the 68th generation, lost longing, people in search, people's passions, incompatibility. The movie will meet the audience on Sunday, January 30. It can be watched over 13 years old and with family.
