Experience the hits of contemporary German-language cinema - whether you speak the language or not!

On the fourth Friday of every month, the DANK Haus screens modern German films with English subtitles. After a very successful fundraiser, we have purchased a brand new movie screen and projector to further enhance the viewing experience. We encourage participants to engage in discussions about the movie and to suggest ones they would like to see. Hopefully we will see you there soon!

    Julian, a young man, firmly believes in his ability to jump over cars and wants to try it out. His best friend, who drives the car, becomes frightened at the last moment, and accidentally dies. Due to Julian's belief in "carjumping" and his guilt at his friend's death, he is placed into a psychiatric clinic in Berlin. Yet when he learns the father of his deceased friend is sick, Julian, driven by the desire to heal him through the power of walking, breaks out of the clinic, and sets out on foot for Southern Germany. 

    As he travels, a number of different people -- a doubt-filled doctor named Julianne, and a frustrated housewife named Ruth -- join him on his journey. Then, the group encounters Jan, a policeman who has been commissioned to take Julian back to the clinic in Berlin. Will Julian make it to Southern Germany, or will Jan convince him to go back to Berlin?
