Beautiful young world with Willi Kubica’s END 80

The Team of END-80 at the 54th Hof International Film Festival

On Saturday, 13 March 2021, Willi Kubica’s END-80 takes us into a beautiful young (cinema) world in the middle of the 21st century in the virtual Central Kino: In an overaged and rocked-out republic, the civil servant Karl has to take care of his 78-year-old father, who can no longer make ends meet on his own in terms of health and finances. At the same time, the alliance Jungbrunnen Deutschland introduces drastic measures to instate forced euthanasia upon reaching the age of 80 ...

A distant world that seems frighteningly present is END-80, which director Willi Kubica stages grippingly. This will be a stirring cinema evening with a guaranteed engaging film discussion, which we will gladly continue after the official part without live broadcast.

The screening is free of charge. However, it is possible to purchase a donation ticket with a freely selectable amount. All proceeds will go to the rightsholders. Our thanks go to our Rendezvous supporters: Central Kino-Hof, Rotary Club Hof and » Kino on Demand.

This video will be streamed using YouTube. Learn more

Since 2017, the Hof International Film Festival has been organizing the HoF Rendezvous under the motto “let’s do it again” at the Central Kino in Hof and the Lodderbast in Hanover. These are screenings organized throughout the year as part of the Hof International Film Festival. The filmmakers also present their films in person. By doing this, we allow the festival to have further impact and increase the anticipation for the next festival edition. And at the same time, the filmmakers are promoted once again through our communication channels.

The HoF Rendezvous currently takes place live and online in the virtual Central Kino with audience chats and with the support of the Rotary Club Hof and Kino on Demand.

AND TOMORROW THE ENTIRE WORLD, which was shown in competition at the 77th Venice International Film Festival, is “revolutionary cinema” (Tagesspiegel).
