This event follows our AGM that same evening.
Ulli Weissbach, film maker and Auckland resident, died in September this year. As a successful producer and director of many documentaries about the Pacific, Ulli placed his films regularly with large TV stations, among them French/German ARTE, German ARD and others. His most recent appearance for the Auckland Goethe Society had been in 2014, when he presented his documentary about Samoa 100 years after German colonial rule had ended.
Ulli was scheduled for an event with the Goethe Society this spring. Instead, we're now going to dedicate this evening to his memory with a screening of his documentary about solar energy in Tokelau.
Film shown in English version.
Drinks and nibbles as usual.
