The second edition of the Gulf German Film Festival will be held in Bahrain on December 6-8 in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region.
“A riveting program of recent German cinema and international co-productions, ranging from art house films to box-office hits. The star-studded event invites an audience of all stripes,” the German embassy and the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region said.
Three films, Gundermann, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, and Too Far Away, will be screened at Cineco Juffair - Oasis Mall in Manama.
All movies will start at 7 pm and entrance is free; however, and under the strict precautionary health measures followed in Bahrain, the green shield will be required.
Ambassador Kai Boeckmann on Thursday hailed the steady deepening of relations between Bahrain and Germany in culture, politics, business and other fields.
He was speaking as German group Arcis Saxophone Quartet enthralled the audience at the Cultural Hall with an outstanding performance of their "Colors of the Saxophone" concert.
The Munich Quartet, Claus Hierluksch, soprano saxophone; Ricarda Fuss, alto saxophone; Edoardo Zotti, tenor saxophone; and Jure Knez, baritone saxophone, had a charismatic and authentic stage presence that captivated the audience and set them aflame with their enthusiasm and passion in the rare form of chamber music.
