The movies in Belgrade will be screened at the Goethe Institute at Knez Mihailova and the Studentski Grad Culture Center, DKSG, as a part of a larger attempt to bring contemporary German films to screens in Serbia and Montenegro that lasts until March 2013.

On January 28th, Warchild, directed by Christian Wagner, will be on the repertoire of the Goethe Institute.

The 2006 film, written by Edin Hadžimahović, tells of a woman who, years after the war in Bosnia ends, finds out that her young daughter, who disappeared in the war, might have survived and been adopted by a German family.

Yella, a 2007 film, directed by Christian Petzold, which will be shown on January 30th, deals with a woman who is estranged from a possessive and violent husband who can't bring himself to give her up. Both screenings are free and start at 7pm.

From January 28th to 30th, the “Travelling Cinema” programme will be the guest of DKSG, which will show two movies daily from 7pm and 9pm.

The first day’s screenings at DKSG are Yella and Afternoon, (2006), by Angela Schanelec, an interpretation of the Chekov play.

On day two, audiences at DKSG can see Crossing the Bridge – The sound of Istanbul, by Fatih Akin, a 2005 documentary about the crossroads between modern and traditional Turkey, and Polska Love Serenade, by Monika Anna Wojtyllo.

The third day will see screenings of Warchild and Truth or Dare, by Arne Nolting and Jan Martin Scharf, (2004).
