22nd Annual European Union Film Festival

The 22nd Annual European Union Film Festival takes place from Nov 22 – Dec 2 @theCinematheque. The Cinematheque’s annual celebration of new cinema from the European Union is proudly presented with the Vancouver consulates and the Ottawa embassies of the member states of the European Union and the Delegation of the European Union to Canada. This year’s festival showcases entries from 25 EU members.

This annual finger-on-the-pulse showcase of acclaimed new films includes 25 titles from 25 countries, and Germany’s film In Times of Fading Light (In Zeiten des abnehmenden Lichts) will screen November 23 (Saturday) 6:30 pm.

The late, beloved Bruno Ganz (also star of Austria’s EUFF pick The Tobacconist) is a Communist patriarch whose ironclad ideologies are on the downswing in German TV veteran Matti Geschonneck’s acclaimed ensemble dramedy. Adapted from Eugen Ruge’s prize-winning novel, this Berlinale-bowed picture, set in East Berlin in 1989, centres on a gathering to celebrate the 90th birthday of decorated Party hardliner Wilhelm Powileit (Ganz), whose grandson just decamped to West Berlin. As family, well-wishers, and comrades sardine into the increasingly undersized abode of Wilhelm’s stepson (Sylvester Groth, Inglourious Basterds), vodka-lubricated emotions run high, and the carefully manicured façade that the GDR is imperishable starts to crack.

November 23 (Saturday) 6:30 pm. Reserve your tickets now: https://thecinematheque.ca/films/2019/in-times-of-fading-light
