I Feel Like Disco

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Goethe-Institut

Germany. Dir. Axel Ranisch. 2013, 93 mins. Digital projection. New York premiere. With Frithjof Gawenda, Heiko Pinkowski, Robert Alexander Baer. Teenager Florian Herbst is happiest when his dad is not at home. Then he can dance around the house with his mom, wear crazy costumes, and forget his troubles. But a sudden turn of events removes mom from the household, and father and son are left to cope with each other, just as Florian is coming to terms with his budding sexuality. This assured “musical, sporting tragicomedy for the whole family” is a stylish, deadpan, and deeply moving film by an exciting emerging talent, Axel Ranisch, who was a student of Rosa von Praunheim.

Tickets: $12 public / free for Museum members. Order online or call 718 777 6800 to reserve tickets. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
