Set in East Germany in the early 1980s, Christian Petzold’s Cold War thriller exudes icy anxiety through the play of trust and doubt as a Berlin physician is torn between her desire to flee to the West and her love for a colleague (Silver Bear, Berlinale; Best Foreign Language Film nominee, 2013 Academy Awards).  Free and open to the public.

Introduction by Barton Byg, UMass Amherst.

(dir Christian Petzold, Germany, 2012, 105 min, in German w/English subtitles)
