This event has ended.

The Museum of Modern Art celebrates its thirtieth annual survey of recent German film with a screening of Laurens Straub and Dominik Wessely's "Reverse Shot – Rebellion of the Filmmakers," an illuminating documentary about the legendary Filmverlag der Autoren, the founding organization of the Neue Kino (New German Cinema) movement. In addition, we present a selection of that movement's defining films, drawn from MoMA's archives, including works by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, and Margarethe von Trotta; "Germany '09," a program of thirteen short films about Germany today, compiled by esteemed German director Tom Tykwer; and the New York premieres of three feature films by directors who are exhibiting at MoMA for the first time: Ulla Wagners "The Invention of Currywurst," Christian Schwochow's "November Child," and Christian Klandt's "Weltstadt." All films are in German with English subtitles.
