Dhaka, May 7 (UNB) - A two-day film screening began at the auditorium of Goethe-Institut Bangladesh in Dhanmondi of the city on Tuesday.
The event was organised in remembrance of late actor Bruno Ganz, a Swiss actor whose career in German-language film and television productions lasted for more than 50 years.
The film screening is part of the 129th edition of World Film Manifestation Program (WFMP), presented by Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in collaboration with Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS).
Four films starred by celebrated actor Bruno Ganz are being screened at the two-day event.
Two films were screened on the first day while two others will be screened on the last day.
‘The American Friend’ (1977) directed by Wim Wenders and ‘Circle of Deceit’ (1981) directed by Volker Schlöndorff were screened at 11 am and 1:30 pm respectively.
Theodoros Angelopoulos-directed film ‘Eternity and a Day’ (1998) will be screened at 11 am on Wednesday while ‘Downfall’ (2004), directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, at 1:30 pm.
From 1996 until his death in 2019, Ganz held the Republic of Austria’s Iffland-Ring, which passes from actor to actor — each bequeathing the ring to the next holder, judging that actor to be the most significant and most worthy actor of the German-speaking theatre.
All screenings are free, and open to all.
