silent green Sommerkino: Looking for Eric

open air cinema

On the occasion of this years' World Cup, silent green offers an alternative programme to Berlin’s public viewing events: The open air cinema in the MARS garden presents unconventional sport films across all disciplines.

In Ken Loach's film Looking for Eric we get to see Eric the postman who is slipping through his own fingers... His chaotic family, his wild stepsons and the cement mixer in the front garden don’t help, but it is Eric’s own secret that drives him to the brink. Can he face Lily, the woman he once loved 30 years ago? Despite outrageous efforts and misplaced goodwill from his football fan mates, Eric continues to sink. In desperate times it takes a spliff and a special friend from foreign parts to challenge a lost postman to make that journey into the most perilous territory of all - the past. As the Chinese, and one Frenchman, say: "He who is afraid to throw the dice will never throw a six."
