Join us for the screening of the Canadian-made docu-drama “Waiting for Waldemar” in Vancouver, BC on April 8th at 2:00pm at the Cinematheque on 1131 Howe St.
“Waiting for Waldemar” is the story of Erika, a one-year old who was born in a German colony in Ukraine. When Hitler declared war on Russia, millions of ethnic Germans were forced to escape. After a lull in the war, her father Waldemar disappeared in the town of Bendsburg, never to be seen again. 70 years later, Erika tries to put together the pieces of what became of her father, using 3rd hand stories and fragments of memories.
Having played to over 2000 people in over 10 cities around North America, “Waiting for Waldemar” is a testament that “love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
The director, Eric Spoeth, will be in attendance for an audience Q&A after the screening.
Eric Spoeth is looking for business partners who may be interested in sponsoring the event, in the form of a full-screen ad that would play prior to the film. For $250, I could offer a 10-30 second commercial spot for companies on the big screen before the feature. If you don’t have a promotional video, we can produce a stills-based ad with a professional voiceover for an extra $250.
