‘Bildnis einer Trinkerin’ – Open air performance (Goethe Institut)
June 30 @ 21:30 - 23:00Free
The Goethe Institut is thrilled to finally be able to open again its beautiful garden to the public. At the end of June the German institute will be able to welcome you to its headquarter in Amsterdam for the screening of the movie ‘Ticket of No Return’, as part of the series German New Wave Cinema.
In this German drama directed by Ulrike Ottinger and produced in 1979, a rich and sophisticated woman – “you” played by Tabea Blumenschein – moves to Berlin to completely indulge in alcoholism. There she meets the “drinker from Bahnhof Zoo” – Christine Lutze -, who marks social decline, but is still more positive about life than “you”. She drinks her way through different bars and experiences nightmares in which she does different jobs. Other female fictional characters such as “exact statistics” – Orpha appointment – or “common sense” – Monika von Cube – comment on the situation.
The film, screened for free, will be available in German with English subtitles, and will benefit of an introduction in English by the film expert Jeffrey Babcock.
We recommend to bring a jacket or a blanket with you on June 30 @21:30, as the evening might be cold.
