Cherry Blossoms – A German movie with English subtitles

The Middletown International Film Festival presents Cherry Blossoms – Kirschblüten – Hanami by Doris Dörrie, with an introduction by Associate Professor Iris Bork-Goldfield.

Doris Dörrie’s bittersweet film beautifully juxtaposes German and Japanese culture and tells the story of mourning and the futility of trying to recover something lost.

The screening will be at 7:00 p.m., on Thursday, October 13, 2011, at Wesleyan University’s Center for Film Studies

Admission is free
