The DEFA Foundation's July screening program is dedicated both to actor Dieter Mann in honor of his 70th birthday as well as the big sporting event of the summer – the Women's Football World Cup that will be held in Germany this year. The film program begins with Hermann Zschoche's drama GLÜCK IM HINTERHAUS (Backhouse Bliss, GDR 1979). Dieter Mann plays librarian Karl Erp, who breaks out of his well-regulated family life to start an affair with a younger colleague. In the second part of the evening, it's all about the beautiful game: the documentary short FRAUEN AM BALL (Woman on the Ball, GDR 1987) creates a portrait of successful women's football team BSG Turbine Potsdam. In the musical comedy NICHT SCHUMMELN, LIEBLING! (No Cheating, Darling!, GDR 1972), the boys' and girls' football teams in the small town of Sonnenthal, which are led by the mayor and the school headmistress respectively, face-off in a bitterly fought contest.
