TIGER MILK
TIGERMILCH
2017, 106 min, Germany, Dir: Ute Wieland

Inseparable best friends Nini (Flora Thiemann) and Jameelah (Emily Kusche) live in the same working-class Berlin housing project, attend the same school and love Tiger Milk, a mix of milk, brandy and passion fruit juice. For the rebellious 14-year-olds, the summer means a chance to finally break from the innocence of childhood - partying, falling in love and perhaps finally doing “it.” But one evening, the girls witness a crime that hits so close to home that nothing will be the same again. Wieland’s adaptation of Stefanie De Velasco’s best-selling novel skillfully relays the relevant social tension of the source material and draws performances from the young protagonists that offer an authenticity rarely seen in coming-of-age films.


U.S. Premiere!

GOODBYE BERLIN
TSCHICK
2016, 93 min, Germany, Dir: Fatih Akin

Eighth-grade classmates Maik (Tristan Göbel) and Tschick (Anand Batbileg) are both outsiders; Maik, from a wealthy albeit dysfunctional family, is virtually invisible to his peers, while Tschick, from a poor immigrant family, stands out at school with his loud Hawaiian shirt and rebellious attitude. With his mother in rehab and his father away on a business trip, Maik plans to spend the summer alone at home - but that changes when Tschick appears with a “borrowed” car and a notion to visit his grandfather in Wallachia. Akin’s (HEAD-ON) long-awaited adaptation of Wolfgang Herrndorf’s best-selling cult novel delivers a fresh, youthful perspective on the traditional road movie. The 2017 Bavarian Film Award winner for Best Youth Film.


Both films in German with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
