The Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures (AC4GC) presents:

The American Friend

(Der amerikanische Freund)

This film will be shown in German with English subtitles.

Saturday, May 2, 2009

(NEW REGULAR DATE: 1st Saturday of the month)

Doors open at 5:00 p.m.  Film starts at 5:30 p.m.

Every month the Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures presents a movie dinner theater hosted at a local establishment with ties to the Germanic Community in Arizona.

Jonathan Zimmermann, a picture framer in Hamburg is diagnosed as having leukemia. Ripley, an American art dealer who deals in forgeries, uses this fact to arrange for a mob associate of his to recruit Zimmermann as a hit man. Zimmermann agrees to this to ensure his family's financial future. Zimmermann descends into a nightmare world of deceit and double dealing. The narrative acts as a metaphor for the relationship between American (Hollywood) and post-war German culture. The appearance of several Hollywood directors in cameo roles underlines this.

Future films include:

Helsinki Napoli
Meier Marilyn
The Second Awakening of Christina Klages
The Wedding Party
A Girl Called Rosemarie
Dinner for One (Der 90. Geburtstag)
Feuerzangenbowle
M
So weit die Füße tragen
