Academy Award Winner for best foreign language film, European Film Awards winner for best film, and winner of the Stacey Falls award for best film of the decade:
Das Leben der Anderen
The Lives of Others
Friday Aug 15th, 8pm
Under the Soquel Bridge, Santa Cruz
The Guerilla Drive-In Collective is pretty unanimous on this movie. Everyone in the collective who has see it agrees that it is one of the best movies to be made in a long time.
Set in 1980s East Berlin, The Lives of Others provides an exquisitely nuanced portrait of life under the watchful eye of the state police as a high-profile couple is bugged. When a successful playwright and his actress companion become subjects of the Stasi's secret surveillance program, their friends, family and even those doing the watching find their lives changed too.
Plus thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, great company and a guaranteed good time!
Bring blankets, pillows, anything you need to be comfortable in the great outdoors, friends, food to share. Donations to support the project are more than welcome.
SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.
URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION: from downtown Santa Cruz, go east on Soquel. Then, when you cross the river, go right. We will be right under the bridge you just went over!
