European Union Film Festival 2018: Award-Winning Movies From across the Globe
Why We Recommend it
This film festival will screen sixteen award-winning titles that will take Hong Kong audiences through a journey of European history, landscapes and culture.
The European Union Film Festival 2018 (EUFF) will bring a versatile selection of recently released movies from sixteen different countries to Broadway Cinematheque, AMC Pacific Place and MOViE MOViE Cityplaza.
The festival will open with a free screening of The Divine Order (Switzerland, dir. Petra Volpe), which is set in Switzerland in 1971, a time when women were still denied the right to vote. When housewife Nora is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement.
The closing film is Welcome to Germany (Germany, dir. Simon Verhoeven). When a retired teacher Angelika decides, against her skeptical husband’s will, to take in a refugee, a whirlwind of complications ensue.
Other films that will be screened include the Swedish romantic adventure-turned-panic-fulled chase Eternal Summer; Quality Time, a Dutch movie chronicling the struggles of five thirty-something men; and Porn to be Free, an Italian documentary film on porn and the sexual revolution in Italy in the 1960s and 70s.
All films will be screened with English subtitles.
