The Light Factory will take Charlotte film fans to the cutting edge of international cinema with their latest ambitious series, Wunderkinder: The Directors of New German Cinema. Running a full week, the event will showcase acclaimed imports from such envelope-pushing directors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Wim Wenders. Among the titles to be screened are 1979's Nosferatu the Vampyre, Werner Herzog's sumptuous remake of the 1922 silent masterpiece Nosferatu, and 1987's Wings of Desire, Wenders' poetic gem about angels in Berlin. Yet the festival's big news is the presence of German helmer Volker Schlondorff, who will be in attendance at all five screenings of his films, including 1979's Oscar-winning The Tin Drum.
