die fremde

A Special Film Event in Mary Immaculate College

The Department of German Studies and MIC Film Club, supported by the European Parliament Information Office and Goethe Institut Dublin, have organised an excellent film event for you which should be highlighted in your diary!

The 2010 film Die Fremde (When We Leave) will be shown on Tuesday, 15th November 2011, in the Tara building room T117.

Feo Aladag, the film’s writer/director describes the film on the Institut’s Washington website as ‘Imprisoned in a loveless marriage in Istanbul, German-born Umay (Sibel Kekilli, star of Fatih Akin’s Head-On) is determined to make a better life for herself and her five-year-old son. Fleeing with the boy to her family in Berlin, she is distressed to discover her family sides with her husband, bound to tradition when it is emancipation that she wants—and needs. “Once a whore, always a whore,” Umay says, but she’s far from resigned to her fate.’

It is an opportunity to see a wonderful film that will not grace the commercial cinemas in Ireland.

Entrance is free and any queries with regard to the above should go to Mary Immaculate College’s Department of German Studies on 061-204300 or email: anna.stiepel@mic.ul.ie
