In 1984 East Berlin, an agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives. This Oscar-winning German film is an intense meditation on the psychology of the abuse of power in a totalitarian surveillance state, and its effects on the abusers and abused alike. Still a very powerful and relevant vision in the era of Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden.
Doors open at 6 pm.
