Die Feuerzangenbowle Film Screening JanuaryJan 11 2019 19:00 - 22:00 America/New_York

Friday, January 11, 7pm - 9pm

Based on the book with the same name, this cult classic directed by Helmut Weiss is a film traditionally shown right before Christmastime. Particularly loved by students, university screenings of Die Feuerzangenbowle (The Punch Bowl) will gather huge crowds; in Göttingen in 2006 over 10,000 students participated in a screening. Armed with props such as alarm clocks and flashlights, the interactive nature of the screening makes it such a popular event. The story follows a renowned writer, Dr. Johannes Pfeiffer, who was homeschooled as a young boy. While reminiscing about his youth, he begins to feel that due to his homeschooling, he missed out on classic adolescent experiences. To remedy this, he decides to go undercover as a student at a small-town high school; the hijinks and mischief that follow will cause all those watching to reflect back fondly on their own schooldays and the carefree attitude accompanied by youth. Bring your alarm clock and flashlight and join in the fun!

This film will be shown in German with English subtitles.
