Gauss Tips

Braunschweig, movie: DOKfilm in Roter Saal: “But beautiful” – Feb 27th, 7:30 pm

Everything will be fine? Filmmaker Erwin Wagenhofer, director of “We Feed The World”, “Alphabet”, “Let’s Make Money” did not answer this question that easy. In his latest film, he searches for the beautiful and the good and shows people who are breaking new ground. What could a good, successful life look like? Is a “different” life possible at all? The result is a film about perspectives without fear, about connection with music, nature and society, about people with different ideas, but with one big common goal: a future-proof world. Uneducated women who build solar panels for villages around the world. Permaculture visionaries on la Palma. A forester who develops the healthiest homes in the world. A young Colombian jazz trio and a soulful Colombian singer … “But Beautiful” connects them all. Everything will be fine? “Everything can be fine,” says Wagenhofer.
The film will be shown in the Red Hall (at Braunschweig Castle), tickets cost € 5. It is recommended to reserve tickets. Further information is available here.
