Berlin Alexanderplatz Trailer

PROGRAM NOTE
Francis is an illegal immigrant from Mali who is trying to lead an honest life in Berlin, but his association with Reinhold, a drug dealer, will lead him into a spiral of misfortune. Berlin Alexanderplatz shows the odyssey of a human being from whom everything was taken: his country, his love, and even his body. How does he still find the courage to go on living? Adapting Berlin Alexanderplatz after Fassbinder′s masterpiece seems impossible, but Burhan Qurbani dares a complete modernization of Alfred Döblin′s book. Energetic, colorful, violent and sexual, Berlin Alexanderplatz shows how much the Germany of 2020 resembles that of the 1920s. 39 years old and of Afghan origin, Burhan Qurbani has made one of the best German films of recent years. (Stéphane du MESNILDOT)
