Occasional Work of a Female Slave

Directed by Alexander Kluge

Kluge’s left wing comedy formally recalls both Brecht and Godard in its depiction of a young housewife and mother with a part-time job as an abortionist. When she’s forced out of her job, she discovers the joy of political activism. The screening will be introduced by Maggie Hoeffgen, formerly of the Goethe Institut, Manchester. In association with The Friends of the Goethe. All tickets: £3.00
