Fatih Akin’s critically acclaimed 2007 film follows the lives of several characters as they travel back and forth between Germany and Turkey in search of parents, children and lovers. A central theme involves generational conflict in relation to social change and cultural assimilation. The film is in German, Turkish and English with English subtitles. Following the screening, CCU German faculty members including Gary Schmidt, Alex Hogue, Anastasiya Shchebet and Simone Boissonneault hold a panel discussion that addresses how the film represents intercultural communication and hybrid identity in the context of contemporary German and Turkish society.
