Film Screening and Podium Discussion

On 11 December, Fatih Akın's film "On the Other Side" (which won the 2007 Cannes Golden Palm for Best Screenplay) will be screened again at the Scala Cinema (located on the Marktstätte) in Konstanz at 6 pm. In the film, Akin links together six different people whose lives intersect (and miss) one other between Germany and Turkey.

After the screening, a panel discussion will take place at 8 pm, including Deniz Göktürk (University of California), Barbara Mennel (University of Florida), Levent Tezcan (Tilburg University) and Özkan Ezli (University of Konstanz). The screening and panel discussion, to which the public is cordially invited, conclude a workshop at the University of Konstanz in which the film is being discussed as "transcultural narration.” The event is sponsored by the Center of Excellence "Cultural Foundations of Integration" at the University of Konstanz.
