Almeria setting for German film

SHOOTING has begun on German film Der General in Almeria City.
The film, directed by Stephan Wagner and starring Ulrich Noethen, is set in the 50s and centres on Fritz Bauer, the German judge and prosecutor who was behind the Auschwitz Trials after the Second World War.
Filming commenced on the rooftop terrace of a building in the city centre and the entrance to the Escuela de Arte. This temporarily became an Israeli hotel before shooting moved Cabo de Gata and back to the city’s Paseo Maritimo. Later the film crew will move on to the German cities of Baden-Baden, Karlsruhe and locations in Bavaria.
