Almanya: Welcome to Germany is a humorous take on postwar migration. Almanya’s ironic, humorous and self-reflective engagement with migration and integration is a welcome departure from the pessimistic films about guest workers typical of the 1970s and 1980s. The film’s transculturality makes it a good representative for a new era of Turkish-German film-making.
There will be a brief introduction of the film presented by Priscilla Layne, a professor in the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is presented as part of Europe Week at Carolina, organized by the Center for European Studies.
