All you need to do is write an email to 3D@moviebrats.com, as subject line use “3D glasses” and don’t forget to insert your mail adress into the email. PLEASE NOTE: This sweepstake is only available for participants located in Germany, since we can send glasses only to mail adresses in Germany.
The television documentary series “Mister & Missis.Sippi” that was broadcast on German television during the Easter holidays, is now available online via the library of its broadcaster 3sat. There are three parts of 45 minutes each that take its viewers on an entertaining journey by raft on the Mississippi, peeking into some true American backrooms. Please note: The show is available in German with only Interviewees speaking in English. And due to possible geo blocking it might be unavailable in non-German-speaking territories.
Volker Strübing, writer, musician, poet, and Patricia Schäfer, German TV host, are travelling on the mississippi by raft. From St. Louis to New Orleans. And they made a documentary series about it. Great idea! The Trailer (in German only) looks absolutely fantastic and I’m definitely going to tune in. Three part series starting tonight at 8:15 PM on German broadcaster 3sat. Parts 2 and 3 will air tomorrow and on Monday.
