... East Germany's all-powerful secret police ...
A charming, wise working-class German comedy.
A self-conscious slice of quirk from Berlin’s indie corners.
An eleven year old searches for immortality. Splendidly cheeky and incredibly Bavarian. A little prankster tale, a typical Bavarian Lausbubengeschichte, set in 2006. A wonderful blend of depth and heartfelt emotion with an authentic sense for the little things that are important in life.
The holiday season is fast approaching and with it comes our Nikolausfeier, Lebkuchen raffle and bake sale.
The next GCA movie event will take place on November 7, 2017 at Room 1009, Rowe Building, Dalhousie University in Halifax.
German with English subtitle. No Place to Go (German: Die Unberührbare) is a 2000 German film directed by Oskar Roehler. It was Germany's submission to the 73rd Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.
Synopsis: Flanders, a famous female author, travels 1989 after the fall of the Berlin wall into the German capital. She is deeply depressed of the events because she saw the communistic states as a very good thing that has now ended. In the joy of these days she finds no person to understand her, so she has to travel back to Munich. After meeting several people, known and unknown, it seems as if there will be no way to go.
Looking forward to see you all there!

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).
