This fall, the German Film Series will screen the following films
in conjunction with LLEA 338 / History of German Cinema (offered in English).

Films screen on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm in Moore Hall 258.

Wed. Oct. 9 – The Murderers Are Among Us (1946) – Dir. Wolfgang Staudte – 85 mins.

When Susanne Wallner returns home from a concentration camp in 1945, she finds the city of Berlin in total ruins. What’s more, the traumatized and cynical surgeon Dr. Mertens has occupied her apartment and refuses to leave. This early post-fascist rubble film – like Roberto Rosselliniʻs Germania Anno Zero (1948) – shows the war-ravaged city and the traces of trauma.

Coming up:

Wed. Oct. 16 – The Trace of Stones (1966) – Dir. Frank Beyer – 139 mins.

Films screened in German with English sub-titles.
All screenings are free.
