DON’T MISS OUT: Fritz Lang’s “M” & Bewerbungstraining II

It’s a busy week here at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta and we have two events we don’t want you to miss out on. Make sure you register for them now to avoid any disappointment!

First up is our movie screening on Friday (May 29) of Fritz Lang’s classic film, “M,” with a film introduction by Dr. Jan Uelzmann of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Fritz Lang M


This film kicks off a brand new film series at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta –  ‘Germany in the 20th Century through the films of Germany’s greatest directors.’

“M” is a 1931 German drama-thriller film directed by Fritz Lang and starring Peter Lorre. One of the first sound films in Germany, Lang considered it his finest work and we thought it would be something you would love to see!

A little about the film:

In Germany, Hans Beckert is an unknown killer of girls. He whistles Edvard Grieg’s ‘In The Hall of the Mountain King,’ from ‘Peer Gynt’ Suite 1 Op. 46 while attracting the little girls for death. The police force pressed by the Minister gives its best effort trying unsuccessfully to arrest the serial killer. The organized crime has great losses due to the intense search and siege of the police and decides to chase the murderer, with the support of the beggars association. They catch Hans and briefly judge him.

A little about the speaker:

Dr. Jan Uelzmann is Assistant Professor or German in the School of Modern Languages at Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Germanic Studies from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011. Dr. Uelzmann teaches courses on all aspects of German studies, with a particular emphasis on contemporary culture, literature and media. He combines approaches from cultural history, film studies and literary studies to explore questions related to the Adenauer (Cold War) period and Weimar modernism. His current research focuses on newsreel special features as government-commissioned propaganda in the emerging democratic West German media system of the 1950s.

Then, the following morning, we have the second part of our Bewerbungstraining. This is perfect for you if you’re dreaming of living and working in Germany.

First impressions, like here in the United States, play a decisive role in a job application. If an employment application is not carefully done and is full or errors, it will be discarded by the head of personnel. To avoid that happening, we have a great couple of workshops to help you to learn what needs your particular attention to help you to nail that job interview, jump on a plane and work in Germany! This course could definitely send you into a direction you never thought possible!

Following on from Workshop I which we hosted earlier in May, Workshop II will take a deeper look at what we’ve already worked on.

Here we will go into the application and résumé process in much more detail, including how to handle important points in an interview.

When: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Where: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta
Admission: $87.50 for Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Members, $125.00 for Non-Members

Both workshops will be facilitated by Mrs. Martina Kraus, holder of a graduate degree in business management. She has successfully worked as a personal instructor in the area of how to conduct a job search.  She will offer pointers for your own job and assist in its planning.

Intermediate German language skills will be needed.

We look forward to seeing you at one or both of these events!
