Join the Department of Germanic Studies for our year-long movie series: "Volk ohne Humor?: The German Comedy Film."
We will be screening our last film in this semester titled: "Toni Erdmann" (Maren Ade, 2016)
The award winning film "Toni Erdmann" tells a story about Winfried Conradi, a divorced music teacher, whose passion is to play pranks on people. After his dog dies, Winfried tries to reconnect with his daughter, Ines, who is pursuing a career in business consulting in Bucharest and has little time for her father.
