Catch-up date now announced: The film is scheduled to be shown at Ada Hinterhof Kino on July 13.

This continues on July 8 with Helga Riedmeister’s film “Von du Schickel”, which was released in 1979 and which deals with violent relations in the family. Filmmaker Helke Sander described the film as, “‘Cause of Luck’ shows the pitiful results of attempts to take everyone’s needs seriously, despite desperate efforts.”

The film series concluded with the 1999 science fiction film “Conserving Ada” on 15 July. It is about the Duchess and British mathematician Augusta Ada Byron King, who is now considered the author of the first computer program.
