Fokus Films From Germany

Supported by FilmHub Scotland, the Goethe-Institut Glasgow is celebrating the 8th edition of their Scotland-wide film festival, Fokus: Films from Germany. Curated in partnership with Rod White, former Head of Programming for Filmhouse Cinemas, the programme presents a diverse selection of German cinema from the past and present-day, screened in their original language with English subtitles.

We are delighted to host the festival's Opening Film, Sisi and I, a lavish and irreverent lesbian period drama starring Anatomy of a Fall's remarkable Sandra Hüller. We're also screening Coming Out — the only feature about gay life ever produced in communist East Germany — and The Forgerwhich tells the true story of a young Jewish man who hid in plain sight in 1940s Berlin and used his skill for forgery to help hundreds of Jewish people escape deportation.
