Washington D.C. Premiere


The Venice Syndrome

7:30 PM
Directed by: Andreas Pichler
Venue: Goethe-Institut Washington

THE VENICE SYNDROME (Germany / Austria / Italy, 2013, 80 min.)

Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet

Washington, D.C. Premiere Venice is sinking under the weight of more than 21 million tourists per year—and it’s losing its residents along the way. Today, only around 60,000 people live there, less than half as many as 20 years ago. According to one study, there will be no more Venetians by the year 2030. Andreas Pichler’s revelatory and compassionate documentary is squarely on the side of the locals as they use humor and heart to cope with unconcerned governments, oblivious day-tourists and the disastrous crumbling of a way of life. Directed by Andreas Pichler. Produced by Thomas Tielsch.

Introduced by Sylvia Blume, Program Coordinator, Goethe-Institut Washington.
