American Cinematheque Showcases German Films

The Goethe-Institute Los Angeles and The American Cinematheque are teaming up to present the best of German cinema at the 5th Annual German Currents Showcase. Granted cinema isn't the first thing that pops into mind when you hear the word "German," but somewhere after sauerkrauts, luxury automobiles and Bavarian brewskies is a lineage of cinema that includes movies like Run Lola Run, Das Boot and Academy Award-winner The Lives of Others.

This year, the Cinematheque will showcase 12 films running from October 26-30. Tickets may be purchased thru Fandango by clicking on the links below.
 
Among the titles featured will be this year's Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard award winner Stopped on Track, Charlotte Rampling's doc Charlotte Rampling: The Look and The Poll Diaries starring Paula Beer, pictured here.
 
Here's a list of the full schedule:
 
October 27th – The Poll Diaries and the U.S. premiere of Jasmin
October 28th – The L.A. Premiere of The Day I Was Not Born and the U.S. Premiere of Westwind
October 29th - The L.A. Premiere of If Not Us, Who? and Stopped on Track
October 30th – The U.S. Premiere of Charlotte Rampling: The Look and West Coast Premiere of Berlin Film Festival favorite Sleeping Sickness. The showcase will close with Berlin Film Festival Femina-Film-Prize winner Lollipop Monster.
