Essential Cinema  The Days Between: A Brief Survey of the Berlin School

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Young Can (Tamer Yiğit) wants to leave petty drug dealing behind, but even in a life of small-time crime, the ground isn’t always steady. Thomas Arslan’s third feature film helped to establish the young filmmakers associated with the Berlin School as a formidable force on the international scene and marked the first major turning point for modern German cinema since the arrival of such filmmakers as Wim Wenders, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, and others. With performances from Birol Ünel (HEAD-ON), Marquard Böhm (ROTE SONNE), and Angela Schanelec (director of PASSING SUMMER).
