Fans of theaters and also philosophers can’t wait to watch Helene Weigel’s (Brecht’s wife) strongly criticized screening “Baal” (1969). The late-expressionist novel of the German poet and author Bertolt Brecht deals with the anarchist and poet Baal. He’s a brash, restless man, who’s always seeking for intoxication, for a woman, for alcohol and cigarettes. He falls for an actress and then sees her and the child she’s expecting as a burden. Furthermore, Baal stabs one of his friends to death.

Fans of Bertolt Brecht can watch the movie at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele on February 7(3pm) / February 8 and 9(1.30pm) and at the Cubix on February 8 (6pm).
