Join the Goethe Pop Up Kansas City for its Pop Up Film Haus series, inviting moviegoers to discover German cinema through a curated selection of films. This week the Goethe Pop Up welcomes all for a screening of Gundermann (2018) by German director Andreas Dresen. Gerhard Gundermann (1955–1998) was a heavy equipment operator at a coal mine and a Stasi informer, but above all he was a gifted singer-songwriter with a fan base in both the former GDR and later in reunified Germany. Gundermann takes a sensitive look at this contradictory personality. The biopic was the big winner at this year’s German Film Awards.
