The feature début of GOOD BYE, LENIN! director Becker is a wryly comic look at life and love in a city where everything is under construction. Jan literally runs into Vera in the middle of a Berlin street riot. Arrested, fined, and then sacked from his job, Jan finds his budding relationship a bit erratic – as is his dysfunctional family, and just about everything else in his life. The screening will be introduced by Maggie Hoffgen, www.germanviews.com Presented in association with the Friends of the Goethe Institut, Manchester.
