6 June @ Cinema Paradiso ·
Presented by Palace Cinemas ·

Join us for a cocktail and live music, before being transported to Berlin in the roaring 20s, in this wildly entertaining film, Mack the Knife – Brecht’s Threepenny Film. In true Brechtian style, director Joachim A. Lang and his outstanding cast enthusiastically bring to life true events that followed the huge success of Bertolt Brecht’s ‘Threepenny Opera’ -the bitter satire of capitalism that is as relevant today as when it premiered in 1928 Berlin.

Lars Eidinger stars as Brecht, who agrees to make a film from his popular musical theatre piece.  But the process is fraught with complications as the artist’s bold creative vision clashes with his production company’s desire to make money. Unwilling to compromise, Brecht takes the producers to court over their undermining of the author’s rights for financial gain, thus igniting a fierce battle.

With opulent décor, luscious costumes, and energetic performances, Lang’s superb re-creation of Brecht’s work and experiences transports the audience directly to Berlin during the Roaring Twenties, carrying with it a message about the importance of artistic integrity in contemporary society.
