The feature debut of director Dörrie, STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART follows Anna Blume, a young supermarket worker who accepts an usual proposal from a much older man. Partly an autobiographical tale of the director, the films shuns cliché to present an attentive study of male-female relationships and loneliness. The screening will be introduced by Maggie Hoffgen, freelance film lecturer. Supported by the Goethe-Institut, Manchester. All tickets £3.00.
