    Upcoming Events

    Movie Night – Göttingen

    Join us to watch "Beale Street" at Kino Lumière. We will meet first at 6:30 pm inside at Café Kollecktiv Kabale, to discuss the present political situation (e.g. the Mueller Report, Democratic presidential candidates, etc.), the 2019 AGM meeting in Heidelberg, exchange ideas for future member events, and just plain socialize before the movie begins.

    At 7:30 is the film “Beale Street” (original title: If Beale Street Could Talk), was written and directed by Barry Jenkins and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2018. It was chosen as one of the top 10 films by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute. It is based on the novel by James Baldwin with the same title.

    The film takes place during the turbulent 1970’s in New York City. It tells the tale of love and racism, and especially the injustices of the American judicial system -still very prevalent in America’s society today.

    The idea for this event originates from a question asked by a DA member at the 2019 AGM meeting in Heidelberg: “How many people remember the Kent State University shootings that occurred on May 4, 1970?” Many hands were raised, compared to the question that followed: “How many people remember the Orangeburg massacre, which took place on February 8, 1968?”...

    Price 7 - 8 Euros. More info here:  Kino Lumiere and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_Beale_Street_Could_Talk_(film)

    It's not required, but consider RSVPing here so we have a rough idea of how many people to expect.
