Kino trifft Kulinarik
(Cinema Meets Culinary Art)

in the Neuhardenberg castle park

Curated by Dieter Kosslick

The Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg foundation was established 20 years ago: It was to be an innovative culture venue in a Schinkel-Lenné designed complex with a long tradition that is closely connected to important events in German history. This year's edition of the Kino trifft Kulinarik ('Cinema Meets Culinary Art') series of events curated by Dieter Kosslick focuses on the question: What kind of films were made in Germany 20 years ago? It transpires that this was a very special year for German films and unusual productions that were internationally successful; it marked a brand new start for the German film industry. More than enough reason to see two of its most successful films again, and to reflect on the glimpses of the present they reveal. The cinematic images of the times will therefore be accompanied by a panel discussion, a concert and west-east German culinary delights.
