Berlin Alexanderplatz: Remastered

Fri 15 Mar 2013

There is no deeper or more atmospheric evocation of the German Weimar era than the German television epic Berlin Alexanderplatz. Adapted from Alfred Döblin’s novel by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the 15-and-a-half hour mini-series has become cult viewing since its 14 episodes were first aired in 1983. It explores the character of the anti-hero Franz Biberkopf as, newly released from prison for murdering his lover, he struggles towards rehabilitation in Berlin’s seedy underworld.

The complete series will be shown in four instalments, an unmissable opportunity to experience a television classic on the big screen.
