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.
Based on an autobiographical novel by German comedian Hape Kerkeling, Caroline Link’s film All About Me (2019) centers on nine-year old Hans-Peter who, despite traumatic experiences, is blessed with a talent to make others laugh. Marvelously handled by Oscar®-winning director Caroline Link All About Me is an entertaining, sincere coming-of-age story about the therapeutic potential of laughter.
Additional screenings take place on May 19 at 3:30pm at SIFF Cinema Egyptian and on May 25 at 6:00pm at Shoreline Community College.
