Being Mr. Kotschie - Mensch Kotschie - GermanGems Festival
The inaugural GERMAN GEMS film event presents a full day of German cinema on Saturday, March 6 at Arena Theater in Point Arena in Mendocino County. Ingrid Eggers, the founder of the Berlin & Beyond film festival and its guiding spirit until now, returns with a program of three new German-language discoveries.
2 PM: BEING MR KOTSCHIE - Mensch Kotschie (Germany 2009, 96 min.)
As his 50th birthday approaches, Jrgen Kotschie seems to have everything a man can ask for: a house, a beautiful wife, a son, success, money, and admiring colleagues. But with his mid-century pressing upon him, he lies awake tormented with sleepless contemplation and confusion about the circumstances of his life. It all begins to unhinge and the banalities of every-day-life become surreal, complete with fantastic images set to a capella Baroque music.
Director Norbert Baumgarten will attend the screening
