Lili Marleen

Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder

In association with The Goethe Institut, Manchester, a screening of Fassbinder’s WWII tale of a German singer who becomes famous and notorious for her rendition of a classic song. But the same tune is used to different effect by the Gestapo. A strange but lively mix of satire and melodrama, that Fassbinder somehow manages to pull off.IntroductionThe screening will be introduced (in English) by Maggie Hoeffgen, formerly of the Goethe Institut, Manchester.Tickets for screening and introduction: £3.00
