Film screening of Carla (Karla, GDR, 1965/90, 129 min., b&w) followed by Q&A with the director.  Introduced by Skyler Arndt-Briggs, UMass.

A young, idealistic teacher discovers that her students are hiding their thoughts and feelings. She works against the routine opportunism, hypocrisy and small-mindedness all around her—but is met with resistance. Written by renowned author Ulrich Plenzdorf, Carla was banned and not screened until after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990.

This program was made possible (in part) by a grant from the UMass Arts Council.


The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
