In partnership with San Francisco’s Berlin & Beyond Film Festival and Goethe-Institut San Francisco, the Honolulu Museum of Art presents the second Berlin & Beyond Honolulu, a special selection of seven essential and award-winning new films from German-speaking countries.
Berlin & Beyond Honolulu showcases seven narrative and documentary films, six of them Hawai‘i premieres. Among them are two official entries for consideration for the Best Foreign Language Film category of the 2015 Academy Awards and two “sneak peek” films that will later screen in the main Berlin & Beyond Film Festival’s soon-to-be revealed 2015 lineup.
