The German film Almanya is loosely based on the migration story of the family of its director, Yasemin Samdereli, who was born in Dortmund, Germany; her parents were immigrants from Turkey. The film will be introduced by Professor Rick McCormick of the University of Minnesota. He will offer an overview of migration to Germany since 1945 and of how migration has been depicted in German cinema in order to provide context for this popular, heart-warming comedy. The film is in German and Turkish with English subtitles. After the film, Rick will lead a discussion about the film, guided by audience questions.
