Deutsches Haus Presents Screening of Isch Kandidiere! (The Candidate!), Sept. 26 at NYU’s Cantor Film Center

September 18, 2009
N-35, 2009-10


New York University’s Deutsches Haus will present a screening of “Isch Kandidiere!” (“The Candidate!”), featuring one of Germany’s most famous comedians, Hape Kerkeling, on Saturday, September 26, 6 p.m. at New York University’s Cantor Film Center, 36 E. 8th St. (at University Place).

The event is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. For more information, please contact Deutsches Haus at NYU: 212.998.8663 or Subway Lines: A, C, D, E, F (West 4th Street); N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place). The film is in German with English subtitles.

“Horst Schlämmer,” alter-ego of Kerkeling, usually works as the deputy editor of a fictitious German newspaper. But now, Schlämmer is running for public office. And not just any public office-Schlämmer wants to be chancellor. He therefore founds the “Horst Schlämmer Party (HSP)” and causes “Horstian” turbulences among the other listed parties. The Cantor Film Center screening of “Isch Kandidiere!” (directed and produced by Angelo Colagrossi) occurs one day before Germany’s Election Day.

The HSP eventually receives a spot on the ballot and on Election Sunday, party leader Schlämmer and his friends follow the spectacle at their favorite bar in Grevenbroich. Their eyes are fixed on the monitor when the first polls come in: excitement! Did Horst really make it? Will he be our next Chancellor? Or does fate hold much more for him?
