Up-Coming: Berlin & Beyond Autumn Showcase

Berlin & Beyond will hold a 1-day film festival on Saturday, October 11th at the New People Cinema, featuring 5 films from Germany, Austria & Switzerland. Megacities, a 1998 documentary about the working poor in Mexico City, Moscow, Mumbai & New York, will be screened as a 35mm projection. Enemies | Friends, a documentary about German prisoners of war taken to Japan from the German colony of Tsingtao, looks fascinating. I'm glad that there will be a chance to see Diplomacy, Volker Schlöndorff's film adaptation of a French play by Cyril Gély about Nazi-occupied Paris.
