TRANSIT
2018, Music Box Films, 101 min, Germany/France, Dir: Christian Pezold

Staged in modern dress, acclaimed director Christian Pezold’s (PHOENIX) adaptation of the 1942 novel of the same name follows a man on the run from advancing German troops in France. While fleeing, Georg (Franz Rogowski) acquires documents promising a Mexican visa to an author who had committed suicide in a French hotel. Identity, morality and the meaning of human connection are all brought into question in a thriller that resonates with refugee crises past and present. Also starring Paula Beer and Godehard Giese. “A film that shivers with the awareness of absence, distance and the relentless, elastic course of time’s arrow.” - Guy Lodge, Variety.
