2017 Upcoming Events

FREE German Movie Night / DEUTSCHER Filmabend

Tuesday, March 28, 7:00 pm - Room 1014 in the Rowe Building at Dalhousie University, Halifax

Movie: Fack Ju, Göhte (113 Min)

A wild farce – and the most successful German film of 2013!

After a 13-month stretch in prison, the crook Zeki Müller is looking for the loot from his last robbery. He applies for a position as a janitor at the school, since, as it happens, the money is buried under the new school gym. However, Zeki lands a job as a supply teacher. He has to deal with a naive trainee teacher and problem kids who can’t even spell “Fuck you, Goethe” correctly. Thus, the young man unintentionally embarks on a career in education.

Organized by the German Canadian Association of Nova Scotia and the Dalhousie University German Department, with support from the Goethe Institut, Montreal.

Movies are free. Films shown in German, with English subtitles. You can RSVP to the event on Meetup by clicking here (but an RSVP is not necessary to attend).

Fack Ju, Göhte (113 Min). Nach 13 Monaten Haft sucht der Ganove Zeki Müller die Beute seines letzten Raubzugs und bewirbt sich aus Hausmeister einer Schule, unter deren neuer Turnhalle das Geld vergraben ist. Doch Zeki bekommt einen Job als Aushilfslehrer; er muss sich mit einer naiven Referendarin und mit Problemkids herumschlagen, die nicht einmal „Fuck you, Goethe“ richtig schreiben können; so beginnt der junge Mann unfreiwillig eine pädagogische Karriere. Bora Dagtekins wilde Farce war der erfolgreichste deutsche Film des Jahres 2013.
