We will show a variety of of GERMAN or GERMAN-language films once a month at the Clinton Street Theater. In addition to the annual Portland German Film Festival, audiences will now have a chance to see German or German-language films on a regular basis. All films are with English subtitles.
Zeitgeist Northwest is showing SOMEWHERE ELSE TOMORROW in collaboration with the German Program in the School of Language, Culture and Society at Oregon State University.
Somewhere Else Tomorrow, a film that follows world traveler, Daniel Rintz on a motorcycle journey across continents and cultures. Daniel Rintz went to Pakistan, Syria and Egypt, among other locations. His 15-year-old bike, Maryann, broke down in Pakistan and he was forced to stay for six weeks. He ended up having a great time and met a lot of amazing people, which actually made the trip that much better. He later continued the trip through the Americas.
The story taps into current feelings of unrest, disillusionment and disconnection felt by whole generations of young people throughout the western world. It’s about having the courage to follow your instincts, no matter how crazy they seem, and what you can accomplish when you stop trying to control things and let go of your fears. Daniel is a media designer, with several years of professional experience with cameras and cinematography.
The story is unique, unplanned, and dives much deeper into foreign cultures than your average tourist, since there was no support team, no film-crew, no sponsor and no budget to buy his way out of tight situations.
The amount of footage accumulated on this adventure and the liberty under which it was taken is unprecedented.
“We believe first-hand-experiences in foreign cultures will contribute to our world becoming more tolerant, understanding and peaceful.”
