World Views

As the name suggests, the World Views series offers a broad selection of films from many different countries and cultures. The themes of the series are openness, understanding, tolerance and forms of dialogue that embrace diversity.

Women with and without migration backrounds, women who have experienced displacement, their families, and everyone who enjoys watching good films are invited to attend our film series World Views. The discussions that take place after the screenings – sometimes with guests – are often impassioned, lively and always based on mutual respect.

Admission is free for all events.

Classics of Arab cinema are shown such as: Sukkar banat (Director: Nadine Labaki), award winning documentaries such as In Search… (Director: Beryl Magoko) or Invisibles (Director: Louis-Julien Petit) , heartbreaking comedies like Rosas Hochzeit (Director: Icíar Bollaín) to unforgettable cinema highlights like Sweet Bean (Director: Naomi Kawase), Adam (Director: Maryam Touzani) and Mustang (Director: Deniz Gamze Ergüven). Children’s films are shown twice a year.
