Tales of the Dumpster Kid

Geschichten vom Kübelkind

BFMAF presents the first UK screening in 40 years of this innovative New German Cinema highlight. The film will be restaged in its classic ‘pub cinema’ setting, the sequence of its 22 episodes chosen by the audience. The Dumpster Kid, born from a trash can, finds her way through the world, discovering hilarity, ecstasy, cruelty, capitalism and patriarchy along the way.
