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.
The U.S. premiere of the drama Oray by German-Turkish director Mehmet Akif Büyükatalay tells the story of a young Muslim man in Germany who accidentally divorces his wife by uttering the word talaq three times during an argument; as a result, his love for her, though unchanged, now conflicts with his faith.
Other screenings of Oray take place on May 20 at 8:30pm at Majestic Bay and on May 22 at 9:30pm at AMC Pacific Place.
