Friday Film Fest: In Zeiten des abnehmenden Lichts (2017)

Fri. Jan. 18, 2019 - 6:30pm - 10:00pm
This movie is the film adaptation of the book with the same title by Eugen Ruge. The film takes place in the early autumn of 1989 in East Berlin. The old communist functionary Wilhelm Powileit (brilliantly played by Bruno Ganz) is celebrating his 90th birthday and is awaiting an array of family and party friends. As the guests arrive, cracks appear in the family structure that cannot be mended any more. His grandson has fled to West Germany, and the turmoil of the last days of the DDR and its failing communist system cannot be ignored any longer. The light is fading for family as well as country.   The film will presented in German with German subtitles.
