Travel in comfort – that’s what we’ll be doing on Saturday, 9 January 2021 at 7:00 pm with Wolfgang Ettlich’s GERMANY JOURNEY at the online HoF Rendezvous screening in the virtual Central Kino. Wolle Ettlich is a director, screenwriter, and producer with an eventful past as a restaurant owner as well as a stage operator and a real HoF regular. After celebrating his world premiere with the documentary GERMANY JOURNEY in the cinema at the last Hof International Film Festival, he is now an online guest at the Home of Films.
The film is a road movie through East Germany and, at the same time, a journey through time. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, documentary filmmaker Wolfgang Ettlich made the journey for the first time and then several times again, with long time intervals in between and meeting the same people again. Driven by a constant curiosity, the filmmaker takes us with him to this reunion.
Just like in the cinema, we’ll start off with a preliminary discussion and then begin the film together via the ARD Mediathek. At the end of the film, there will be a joint discussion with the director, in which all viewers can actively participate via the chat:
