Public Film Screening: Zu Weit Weg (Too Far Away, 2019)

November 3 @ 5:30 pm

About the Film
12-year-old Ben and his family must leave their village because of the surface lignite mining in
the western region of Germany. Ben has trouble fitting into his new school and equally new
soccer club, while his old friends are already moving on. Then Tariq, a young Syrian, is seated
next to him in school, and the two slowly bond over their shared interests–and shared losses.

Thank you to our following co-sponsors: UNC’s Department of Geography, UNC’s Department of Germanic & Slavic Languages & Literatures, and UNC’s Institute for the Environment. This event is also made possible by the Goethe-Institut.
