German Film: Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others) @ Room 132, Marano Campus Center Auditorium
Nov 5 @ 7:00 pm

The Lives of Others

Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others), directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, is a multi-award winning film, including the 2006 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

At once a political thriller and human drama, this film begins in East Berlin in 1984, five years before Glasnost and the fall of the Berlin Wall and ultimately takes us to 1991, in what is now the reunited Germany. THE LIVES OF OTHERS traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Wiesler, a highly skilled officer who works for the Stasi, East Germany’s all-powerful secret police. His mission is to spy on a celebrated writer and actress couple, Georg Dreyman and Christa-Maria Sieland.
