Alles auf Zucker - Go for Zucker

Trailer: https://www.fandor.com/films/go_for_zucker

Comedy about a dysfunctional Jewish family, mixing slapstick humor with sharply drawn social satire, not to mention a disarming dose of political incorrectness. Two estranged brothers - one a hard-living former East German celebrity sportscaster now very much down-on-his luck, and the other his quasi-Orthodox brother from the West - will need to reconcile in order to share their mother's inheritance.

Almanya - Welcome to Germany

Trailer: https://youtu.be/pVBgUUzF1Hw?t=14

A breezy, colorfully styled comedy, “Almanya” centers on multiple generations of a German-Turkish clan, dealing with cultural misunderstandings and the question of what constitutes national identity.

The whole world wants to book tickets for this historic spectacle and we are holding 20 choice seats, just for the occasion.

Join Hubertus Liebrecht, Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany and others on a tour of the Imperial Capitals, including Budapest, Vienna, Prague with the Passion Play in Oberammergau, followed by an opportunity to attend the famed Opera Festival in Munich.
