7:00 pm-9:00 pmGerman Film Festival, Film #3: "We Are Young, We Are Strong" Zamora's Market
The German Film Festival will feature four recent, critically-acclaimed films from Germany, each one engaging with the topic of immigration, multiculturalism, and outsiders in Germany and Europe. This third film, "We Are Young, We Are Strong" (2014), recounts the 1992 Rostock riots from the perspectives of three very different characters. On Aug. 24, 1992, in the eastern German city of Rostock a rampaging mob, to the applause and cheering of more than 3,000 bystanders, besieged and set fire to a residential building containing, among others, more than 120 Vietnamese men, women, and children on what has since become known as "The Night of the Fire." The riots became a symbol for xenophobia in the just recently reunited Germany. Trailer here: Drama, German with English subtitles.
