a screen still from the film Basta - Rotwein oder Totsein

CANCELLED: Basta - Rotwein oder Totsein: Germanic Film Series

The spring 2020 Germanic Film Series sets out to explore various aspects of German humor. Do Germans and Austrians have a sense of humor? And, if so, what does that look like?

Former mob enforcer Oskar leaves prison a changed man and starts a new life with his prison psychologist Maria. Instead of returning to his life of crime, he indulges in his true passion: cooking. But when word gets out that he plans to publish a book entitled „Secrets,“ the godfather of Vienna gets suspicious.

All films will be shown in German with English subtitles. Pizza, sodas, and snacks will be served, and a discussion will occur after the viewing.

Events are free and open to all of the WashU community!
