This year will see another Oldenburg screening at the Soho International Film Festival, showcasing a highlight from the German section of last year’s Oldenburg Film Festival. In 2011 Thomas Stiller and Liv Lisa Fries presented “She Deserved It” to an enraptured audience. This year it is Tim Trachte’s psycho thriller “You Don’t Wanna Know”, which gets the chance with the New York film fans. Andreas Lust and Sophie von Kessel star in the gripping and intense tale, about the crumbling facades of bourgeois life and the limits of personal morality. Before the main feature the award winning short “Kinderspiel” by Lars Kornhoff is shown, dealing with the troubles of a teenage father fighting for his rights. The screening starts on April 17th on 3.30pm. Beforehand, on April 14th on 11am, Robbie Bryan’s “Choose” is shown in a short film selection.
On April 18th 6.30pm, Henry Barrial’s “Pig” will see its New York premiere. The bleak sci fi flick about a man without memory waking up bound in a desert, is a masterful look into a not too distant future. April 19th sees a special screening of John Gallagher’s “The Deli”, which had its international premiere 15 years ago in Oldenburg. It will be presented along with the short film “I Love You”, which celebrated its world premiere in Oldenburg last year, and will kick off this event, starting at 9pm.
The Soho International Film Festival runs from April 13th until April 20th at the Sunshine Cinema, 143 East Houston, New York City. For tickets and further information visit: http://www.siffnyc.net
