WELCOME TO GERMANY
WILKOMMEN BEI DEN HARTMANNS
2016, 116 min, Germany, in German with English subtitles
Dir: Simon Verhoeven
Taking a refreshingly optimistic stance on the refugee crisis, WELCOME TO GERMANY follows the travails of a wealthy Munich family which takes in a young Nigerian refugee. A box office success in Germany, this timely and insightful social comedy addresses the inherent difficulties that refugees face, particularly the racism that persists in German society, and was named Best Film at both the Bambi Awards and the Bavarian Film Awards.

Where: Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90403
