Presented by: Peggy Setje-Eilers, Assistant Professor of German Australia, Germany, UK (2013) Dir. Cate Shortland. What might it have been the experience of the children of Nazi parents in immediate post-war Germany? Juxtaposing the idealized, romantic ideal of the National Socialist view of Germany with the realities of children at risk in a post-war landscape, Shortland’s film is thought-provoking and dissonant.
German with English subtitles. 109 mins. 35mm. Takes place in Sarratt Cinema.
