German cinema travels through Brazil

by 

- November is now a German film month all over Brazil: after Salvador, the 'Panorama alemão' festival is going to Brasilia, Fortaleza, and Porto Alegre

German cinema travels through Brazil

German cinema currently has a major presence in the growing Brazilian market: not only was a German focus programmed at the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival and 40 German films and co-productions shown at São Paulo, but there is now a yearly German festival travelling through four more cities: Panorama alemão.

After a successful debut last year, with around 3,200 spectators and very positive audience reactions, the second edition of the event is presenting ten new German award-winning features. The selection, which has just been screened in Salvador (October 31 - November 7), is now travelling to Brasilia (November 8 to 15), Fortaleza (November 14 to 21), and Porto Alegre (November 21 to 28). Most of the films being shown in the Panorama have already been programmed in the afore-mentioned festivals, but “we would like to also give those Brazilian audiences outside of the major festival cities the chance to get to know contemporary German cinema in all of its diversity,” says  Mariette Rissenbeek, managing director of German Films. The prestige of the selection is enhanced by the presence of various actors (such as Ulrich Tukur, from Exit Marrakech [+see also:

) and directors (including Two Lives [+see also:
