Another film in German ‘They Divided the Sky’ based on the book by Christa Wolf - East German writer and made into a film in East Germany in Protected content . Nice to watch the film that week since the 3rd October is the German bank holiday to commemorate the reunification of the two German states.

The film will be in German, probably without subtitles. It will be shown in a living room or rather library atmosphere (screen & beamer), there will be drinks after the film. I would recommend a good level of German to enjoy the film and a chat in German afterwards. English is not necessarily spoken. Tickets are 6.00 Euro, to be bought at the door. If you have question please contact me. The introduction to the film starts at 20:00, meeting thus at 19:55.

For a review of the book see Protected content The story follows Rita, a young country girl who moves to the city, both for her teaching course and to be with her older boyfriend, Manfred. On the surface, the book is a romantic novel charting the progress of the couple’s relationship; however, their struggles are merely a vehicle to examine more far-reaching events occurring in both of the German states.
