Kino 2016 is a festival of German films, including a documentary about the great filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and a special showing of the 1920 cult classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, recently restored.
Kino 2016 is April 7-14 at Cinema Village, and some screenings have special guests discussing the movie afterward, including a FREE panel discussion about Fassbinder, who had directed an astounding 44 films by the time of his death at age 36 in 1982. The Fassbinder Story has been shown on the international film circuit to critical acclaim.
Kino is the German word for movie theater.
Kino 2016 showcases eleven new feature length films, four of them US premieres, plus an evening of shorts. This year also features films by German female directors, including Isabelle Steer’s The Weather Inside, a riveting drama about foreign aid workers in war-torn countries in the Mideast.
