WESTCOAST
CINEMA

Programme | 23 August 2024

Because it was so nice: let’s celebrate summer 2024 together on the coast again! The banks of the Main in Griesheim, surrounded by industrial heritage, an old crane and a wild river, will once again be transformed into WESTCOAST, offering open-air cinema, concerts, kids’ workshops, readings, culinary delights and delicious drinks on seven consecutive weekends. This time, the diversely curated supporting programme features three main themes, hands-on activities, DJs and so much more. The West Coast spirit unfolds in the starry sky, in moving pictures, in conversations at the bars, in dance, in sport and through movement by the river. Here’s to summer! On the West Coast!

 

FRANKFURT WESTCOAST Stroofstraße, level number 35, 65933 Frankfurt am Main

Fr, 23 August, 9.30 PM
Perfect Days | OPEN AIR CINEMA

Wim Wenders guides us through Japan and accompanies Hyrayama, who cleans public toilets in Tokyo every day with unwavering calm, meticulousness and composure. He seems content with his simple, secluded life and devotes himself to his passions for music and literature away from the structured daily routine. “Perfect Days” is a deeply moving, poetic reflection on the beauty of the everyday, on light, shadows, trees and movement. The lead role is embodied by Kōji Yakusho in such an engaging way that you just want to watch him go through his routines forever. This meditation in slowness is also a nod to musicians such as The Animals, Patti Smith and, of course, Lou Reed, whose song “Perfect Day” gives the film its title. A perfect film!
