The 12th Annual Week Of German Cinema In Mexico Offers Recent Films And Classics By Lang And RW Fassbinder

The first part of Fritz Lang's Die Nibelungen (Siegfried) will be the opening film of the 12th annual week of German cinema in Mexico! Things kick off on Thursday, August 15 at the Cinematheque (Cineteca Nacional). This film exhibition is presented by Goethe Institut and Cineteca Nacional, with the support of Patronato de la Industria Alemana para la Cultura. 

The other venue for the week of German cinema, which ends on September 1, is Mexico's largest movie theater chain Cinepolis, through three of its Mexico City cinemas: Cinepolis Diana, Cinepolis Perisur and Cinepolis Interlomas. A selection of these films will travel afterwards to ten states in Mexico: Nuevo León, Guadalajara, Morelos, Zacatecas, Hidalgo, Tijuana, Oaxaca, Veracruz, Tamaulipas and Aguascalientes. 

The menu: the mentioned Fritz Lang classic (plus its part two), twelve recent German films (including two documentaries), a juicy retrospective of Barbara Sukowa (with the actress in person), and the visit of Anne Kodura. Here's the complete list of German movies to be shown in Mexico City from August 15 to September 1:
