After an amazing opening weekend we are ready for more cinematic masterpieces:

WEEKEND [FIN DE SEMANA] directed by Moroco Colman tells the story of Carla and Martina. The two women are spending a weekend together by the lake – but unspoken words overshadow their relationship. The film will be shown at 10pm at Caligari FilmBühne.

Just at the same time (10pm) at Murnau-Filmtheater: the German premiere of PURGATORYO directed by Derick Cabrido. Ilyong, the main character, gets shot dead by the police and transported to a poor firm of undertakers, which is maneged by Violet. Since his body has arrived, chaos and misfortune have entered the house as well. Director Roderick „Derick“ Cabrido is a multi-award winning documentary film producer and filmmaker. He was born and raised in Tondo, Manila – one of Philippine’s most populated and underdeveloped areas.

Those of you who are wondering how the first ever zombie movie looked like should stop by at Caligari FilmBühne at 8pm to catch an exclusive screening of  WHITE ZOMBIE COMEDY with Ralph Turnheim (silver screen lyricism) and Jenny Lippl (violin & percussion). Thanks to live synchronization we will present the 1932 classic like never seen before!
