Jan 20 Teaserclip for "Oktoberfest 1900" ("Empire Oktoberfest") with a short interview with Maximilian Brückner, taken at BR-Press Filmbrunch on Jan 17 in Munich's Literaturhaus
Jan 18 "Line of Separation" (aka "Tannbach") tells the story of the small German town of Tannbach as the Cold War's Iron Curtain descends upon Eastern Europe. A microcosm of the events following World War II, the series looks at how the Cold War affected communities, friends and even families. Meet the cast: Johanna Bittenbinder, Jonathan Berlin, Henriette Confurius, Heiner Lauterbach, Martina Gedeck, Alexander Held, Senta Auth, Florian Brückner, and finally, Maximilian Brückner, the actor behind Gustl Schober. While he had a bit part in "War Horse", he went on to have a larger role in "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days", and to portray Martin Luther in the TV mini-series "Reformation". Not to mention - you guessed it - a reoccurring role on "Tatort" as Franz Kappl. "Line of Separation" truly has it all: art direction, drama, and a cast filled with talented performers. Check it out now on WGBH Passport, or broadcasting on Boston's WGBX 44. Full article

Nov 22 The '11th Brand New Films from Germany', prepared in collaboration with the Istanbul Modern Cinema and the Goethe-Institut Istanbul, continues to bring contemporary prominent German films to film lovers. The screenings are taking place at the Istanbul Modern Cinema in Beyoğlu district from Nov. 21 to Dec. 1, 2019. The film program, titled “We are family,” includes broken homes, fathers and sons trying to reunite, alternative families formed by people who choose to live and work together.
“Das Schönste Paar” (“The Most Beautiful Couple”) will be screened at 1 p.m. on Nov. 24. Directed by Sven Taddicken and starring Maximilian Brückner, Luise Heyer, Leonard Kunz, Jasna Fritzi Bauer and Aurel Manthei, the film is about Liv and Malte's dreamy holiday on a Mediterranean island turning into a nightmare when three young men raid the house where they are staying at and rape Liv. Liv and Malte, both teachers, return home to Germany and slowly start adapting to their normal life, until Malte runs into one of the assailants one day and is filled with an insatiable hunger for revenge. The already-delicate balance of the couple’s relationship is on the edge of breakdown once again. Director Sven Taddicken depicts how the couple survives after the traumatic event through a cast of detailed characters and their daily lives.
