IndoGerman Filmweek 2022Promoted
This year is both the 10 year anniversary of IndoGerman Filmweek and the 75th anniversary of Indo-German diplomatic relations.
To celebrate this historic year, we have invited the Indian Ambassador His Excellency Mr. Parvathaneni Harish to the opening of the festival.
The films of the festival once again show the linguistic diversity of India. The subcontinent is a multicultural melting pot with 32 official languages and hundreds of dialects. The opening film "Chhello Show“ (Last Film Show) by director Pan Nalin tells of his childhood in a small town in the state of Gujarat with autobiographical references.
Filmmaker Sandeep Mohan, who was our guest previously in 2019, presents "Danny goes Aum“ in a world premiere.
The festival team again has high expectations for films in the regional languages Bengali, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Panjabi, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.
We are also excited about commercial blockbusters like the South Indian literary adaptation Ponniyan Selvan and the Hrithik Roshan starrer Vikram Vedha, which will also be screened during the festival in Babylon’s biggest screen.
In the supporting programme of the festival, we want to take a look behind the scenes of the German dubbing production of Indian films. We have invited personalities like Stefanie Masnik, who voices Alia Bhatt in German versions of her most famous films.
While a jury will choose the best film and the best leading actors, the festival audience is again called upon to cast their vote for the "Audience Award".
This year’s cultural programme is entitled "Understanding India – between division, departure and integration". Against the backdrop of global events, topics such as refugees and integration are becoming increasingly important in both Indian and German society. To this end, discussion rounds, lectures, readings and workshops and exhibitions are being conceived that represent parts of Indian culture that are little known to most of German society.
The bestselling author Wolfram Fleischhauer, who lives in Berlin, will read from his German-Indian novel "School of Lies“ on Friday, 7 October 2022 at 19:30h. An exciting family drama about the Berlin student Edgar von Rabenow.
In 1920s Berlin, the young industrialist’s son Edgar falls for the Anglo-Indian Alina and is lured by her all the way to India, where a life-changing experience and decision await him. On the trail of his supposedly deceased mother, a new picture of his family emerges for him. His previous world disintegrates into its individual parts as a structure of lies. If he wants to decide in favour of the truth, he has to leave his previous life behind…
