After a 13-month stretch in prison, the crook Zeki Müller is looking for the loot from his last robbery. He applies for a position as a janitor at the school, since, as it happens, the money is buried under the new school gym. However, Zeki lands a job as a supply teacher. He has to deal with a naive trainee teacher and problem kids who can’t even spell “Fuck you, Goethe” correctly. Thus, the young man unintentionally embarks on a career in education.

Inauguration of the exhibition "Photographic Impressions from Germany" by German photographer "Bero" Bernhard Robert Blumöhr at Ray's Atelier, Colva.


The wide spectrum of the photos by the artist "Bero" in "Photographic Impressions from Germany" was generated when en route on his photographic expeditions. The photos show a conglomerate of people, landscapes, architecture and abstract details which are partly alienated and double exposed and are "selected at random" just as the photographic artist chooses to do.









December 12: Oktoberfest

A happy crowd enjoyed the eighth edition of IGSG Oktoberfest with German beer, Wiener, Sauerkraut and other German delicacies.
