Goethe Pop Up Seattle and the Honorary Consulates of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are partnering with SIFF, the Seattle International Film Festival, to present the festival’s official selection of German-language films. Watch an array of recent releases covering various genres, including documentary, comedy, and drama, and experience how much German cinema has to offer.
Marie Kreutzer’s The Ground Beneath My Feet (2018) is a cinematic exploration of gender expectations and mental health. A workaholic business consultant, her life already complicated by caring for her paranoid-schizophrenic half-sister and an affair with her female boss, begins to feel her own mental state destabilizing. The Austrian drama premiered this year at the Berlin International Film Festival and was selected to compete for the Golden Bear.
A second screening takes place on June 6 at 3:00pm at SIFF Cinema Uptown.
