Video Association of Dallas presents Wings of Desire
As part of their New German Cinema Showcase, the Video Association of Dallas presents Wings of Desire.
Two angels, Damiel and Cassiel, observe life and the human condition on Earth. They've been doing this for a very long time and have seen both the best and the worse of mankind. Damiel wants nothing more that to be human - to feel, to touch, to smell, to have emotions. When his wish is granted, he also learns that being human has its limitations that are in many ways no different than being immortal.
A reception will be hosted before the movie by the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies and the Dallas Goethe Center. The screening will be followed by Q&A with Nils Roemer.
