The German premiere of NOAH took place in Berlin on Thursday, 13 March, 2014. Director Darren Aronofsky (also known for his movies The Wrestler and Black Swan), together with actors Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman walked the carpet.
The newly reopened Zoo Palast, near Berlin’s Zoological Garden, served as venue for this premiere.
On December 5th, 2006, a polar bear named Knut was born at the Berlin Zoological Garden. He was the first polar bear who survived past infancy in more than 30 years. Quickly, he became a celebrity and was center of a mass media phenomenon all around the globe.
After he died at the age of four, on March 19th, 2011, he got stuffed and can now be seen in the foyer of the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, free of charge, until May 5th 2013.
After that, he will be added to the scientific research collections of the Museum and will not be displayed in another exhibition before 2014.
The Festival of Lights has finally ended and during the last two weeks, I took a couple of pictures from Berlin’s most known Landmarks. Sadly, due to restoration works, the Victory Column wasn’t illuminated this year, but I got some nice shots from the Berliner Dom, Schloss Charlottenburg and the Brandenburger Tor.
