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!

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.
