Spring 2016

Every Wednesday evening, for over a decade, the department has offered weekly movie screenings free of charge to the Yale community at 7:00 to 9:00 PM (in WLH 116), complete with popcorn! In the past, students have enjoyed watching such well-known movies as Donnersmarck’s The Lives of Others, Tykwer’s Run Lola run, Haneke’s The White Ribbon, and Fatih Akin’s Kebab Connection, which are also part of the undergraduate curriculum, but also recent movies by lesser known film-makers, such as Shoppen, Kokowäh, as well as the occasional famous Tatort thriller.
