Friday Film Fest: Das schweigende Klassenzimmer (2018)

Fri. Oct. 11, 2019 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm
This movie tells the true story of a group of 12th grade students in 1956 in Storkow (Brandenburg/GDR) who observe a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the Hungarian uprising of the same year. What seems like a small innocent gesture mushrooms into a serious state affair with far reaching consequences for the students. When teachers who are also members of the Communist party hear about the incident, they solicit the involvement of the secretary of education of the young republic. Their attempts to expose the instigators of this “counter-revolutionary act” only strengthen the resolve of these remarkable students.
All of our events are open to the public.
