Jerman Fest is back again! The annual event was opened with the screening of Metropolis, a classic silent sci-fi movie made in 1927, accompanied by a live orchestra. A few days later German Cinema started. There were nine movies shown in three days free of charge. Afief and I only watched 6 movies, one documentary and five feature films.
Jerman Fest is a festival held by the German government through the Goethe Institute to introduce their culture (particularly arts) to Indonesian people. German has a lot of good movies and I think it's been an honour to be able to watch some of them, thanks to Jerman Fest. It's quite hard to find European movies in Indonesia; Hollywood is very dominant here.
I'm going to write a review for each movie we watched, but in the meantime here are some screengrabs from Auf das Leben, Zeit der Kannibalen, and Als Wir Traumten:
See you in the next post! ;)
