NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art marks its 31st annual survey of recent German cinema with Kino! 2010: New Films from Germany, from April 21 through 30, 2010. Included in this year’s exhibition is a selection of 10 features and 14 short films. Features by three leading directors—Andreas Dresen (Whisky with Vodka, 2009), Hans-Christian Schmid (Wondrous World of Laundry, 2009), and Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, 2009)—are highlights of the exhibition. Making their debuts at Kino! 2010 are filmmakers Susanne Schneider with The Day will Come (2009), and Jan Raiber, whose autobiographical documentary All My Fathers (2010) premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February. The exhibition is organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, in cooperation with German Films (Munich) and its New York representative, Oliver Mahrdt.

German history is a common thread that runs through several of this year’s selections including Enrique Sanchez Lansch’s The Reichsorchester: The Berlin Philharmonic and the Third Reich (2008), which tells a dark story about the orchestra’s past; Marco Wilms’ Comrade Couture (2009), about the fashion industry in former East Germany; and the Oscar-nominated short Rabbit à la Berlin (2009) by Bartek Konopka and Piotr Roslowski, told from the point of view of bunnies on the east side of the Berlin Wall. In contrast to these films that look at the past, Irene Langemann’s more contemporary documentary, From Ramstein with Love (2009), is set against the backdrop of the current Iraq war, and examines the lives of German-American families stationed at the Ramstein Air Base and hospital in Rhineland.

Rounding out the exhibition is Next Generation 2010, a compilation program of 12 short films from Germany’s most prestigious film academies. Among them are three recent acquisitions to MoMA’s film collection—Hans Christian Schmid’s Requiem (2006), Philip Groening’s Into Great Silence (2005), and Hans Weingartner’s The Edukators (2004).
