Pop Up Film Haus: "Toni Erdmann"

Free and open to the public!

As part Wunderbar Together: Year of German-American Friendship, Goethe Pop Up Kansas City invites everyone to discover contemporary German cinema. Each film will be shown in German with English subtitles.

Join us this week for a screening of Maren Ade’s acclaimed film Toni Erdmann, winner of five European Film Awards including Best Picture and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards.

Hardworking Ines reluctantly agrees to spend time with her estranged father when he unexpectedly reenters her life. Disguised in a tacky suit, wig, and fake teeth, Ines' father Winfried barges into her professional life pretending to be "Toni Erdmann" her CEO's life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
