  • The Tin Drum

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 Oct. 25-31, the event will showcase acclaimed imports from such envelope-pushing directors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Wim Wenders. 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 the new director's cut of 1979’s Oscar-winning The Tin Drum. Look below for photos, titles, times, venues and costs for all of the movies. And for other info, go to The Light Factory website here.
