WESTLER from Wieland Speck
1985, 96mins, Germany

Felix from West-Berlin falls in love with Thomas in East-Berlin. At first they keep their relationship going by regular visits from Felix, but the curfew forces him to return every evening. When the East-German authorities become suspicious, Thomas decides to try and flee to the West.

CIMA Berlin was born out of the new project “Kino verbindet” (“Cinema Connects”) with which the AG Cinema Guild wishes to contribute to the cultural integration of young adult refugees and will regularly screen films that give account of the LGBTIQ* history of the city. Directors, refugees and everyone else is invited to join a dialogue and exchange after the screenings.

Guest: Wieland Speck
Presented with English Subtitles and live Arabic translation
