Kino Special: Stories from Berlin @ Kino Rotterdam
Nov 2 – Dec 24 all-day

Exactly thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall KINO looks back at the city’s rich cinematic history through eight feature films, an epic television series and a riveting music documentary spanning over eight decades. Starting November 2nd we take a kaleidoscopic deep dive into a city that for better and for worse dictated the cultural agenda of a continent like no other city has done in the 20th century. In partnership with the Goethe Institute we bring you a selection of films that defined the many aspects of this sprawling metropole and its people.
