German Currents Film Festival at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre

A partnership of the Goethe-Institut, Friends of Goethe in Southern California and the American Cinematheque produced the 13th showcase of new German films in Los Angeles, this past weekend, October 11-14, 2019. Although Germany yields a considerable number of films annually and holds one of the biggest European film festivals, the Los Angeles event seems to be marked by a “less is more” attitude, and has remained unaffected by the ambition to match the surrounding Hollywood flare.
