In anticipation of our Hollywood Talks Shop Special with Burkhardt Klaussner, the Goethe-Institut is screening three films starring the outstanding German actor.
THE WHITE RIBBON
Dir. Michael Haneke, Germany 2009, 144 min., German with English subtitles, digital
A village in Protestant North Germany. 1913/1914. On the eve of the First World War. The story of a school and church choir led by the local village teacher. His young singers and their families: squire, preacher, estate manager, midwife, doctor, farmer – a slice of society. Strange accidents happen and become more and more like ritual punishment. Who is behind it all?
