The next screening will be the last one in this semester. As usual we will have a bring and share party before and during the screening! I am especially appealing to the Swiss community to come out in their numbers! 🙂 Because our last film is the funny, witty Swiss comedy. 

DIE HERBSTZEITLOSEN – LATE BLOOMERS
(2006, 90 min., dir. Bettina Oberli, starring Stephanie Glaser, Schweizerdeutsch with English subtitles) 

DATE: 11 November

TIME: 5.00 p.m. (c. t.)

VENUE: Howard College, MTB West Wing, 1st Floor, German Programme, Media Room F251 

Story:
Martha bears great suffering since her husband has died. Her small corner shop in a village in the Emmental region is joylessly plodding along. Walther, Martha’s son and the rather unholy village pastor, would like to use the shop for his Bible group. But Martha’s friend, lively Lisi , is fighting against Martha’s resignation and supports her to realize her long-cherished dream of a lingerie boutique. The sinful lingerie temple horrifies the sanctimonious village community that goes on the barricades.
There will also be a pre-film – a 5-min. interview with Jacqueline Machabais, retired Professor in French, which she did with the SABC during the performance of “Angel’s Place” outside the Durban City Hall in 2012. 

Looking very much forward to seeing you all there!
