German Film Festival Closing Night: THE 3 PENNY OPERA

ALL AGES 112 mins

About the Event

88 years after its initial release, we celebrate the closing of the festival with this cinematic delight. Join us for a glass of wine before the film, as we say auf Wiedersehen to the festival.

About the film

Director: Georg Wilhelm Pabst
Actors: Rudolf Forster, Valeska Gert, Lotte Lenja, Carola Neher, Fritz Rasp, Reinhold Schünzel
German auteur G. W. Pabst (Pandora’s Box, 1929) places audiences firmly in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London alongside our underworld anti-hero Macheath (Mackie, or “Mack the Knife”), a vicious, amoral thug who sees himself as nothing more than a legitimate entrepreneur. When Macheath marries Polly Peachum without the permission of her father, Jonathan Peachum, the “beggar king” of London and a fellow businessman, a bitter rivalry ensues.
