Lives of Others: Film Screening and Discussion

This event is a movie and debate session based around the film The Lives of Others.

  • In  East Berlin, 1983, dedicated Stasi officer Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe), doubting that a famous playwright (Sebastian Koch) is loyal to the Communist Party, receives approval to spy on the man and his actress-lover Christa-Maria (Martina Gedeck). Wiesler becomes unexpectedly sympathetic to the couple, then faces conflicting loyalties when his superior takes a liking to Christa-Maria and orders Wiesler to get the playwright out of the way.
  • Following the conclusion of the movie you will have the opportunity to discuss the important issues that arise from the film.
