3 DAYS IN QUIBERON
3 TAGE IN QUIBERON
2018, Beta Cinema, 115 min, Germany/Austria/France, Dir: Emily Atef

Sweeping the major categories at the 2018 German Film Awards (including Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Leading Actress), this black-and-white Valentine to Romy Schneider offers a look at the legendary actress shortly before her unexpected death in 1981. Schneider (played elegantly by Marie Bäumer) is recuperating at a spa in Quiberon with her childhood friend Hilde (Birgit Minichmayr) when Stern magazine calls; Robert Gwisdek and Charly Hübner costar as the journalist and photographer assigned to interview the troubled star.


Los Angeles Premiere!

THE SILENT REVOLUTION
DAS SCHWEIGENDE KLASSENZIMMER
2018, Studio Canal, 111 min, Germany, Dir: Lars Kraume

In this thrilling historical drama, a small act of solidarity brings chaos to the lives of a class of teenagers living in 1956 Communist-controlled East Germany. Classmates Kurt (Tom Gramenz) and Theo (Leonard Scheicher) could have never predicted that a casual but unauthorized trip to the movies in West Berlin would result in their divulging of political information that would forever change them and their fellow classmates. A Berlinale entry from historically minded director Lars Kraume (THE PEOPLE VS. FRITZ BAUER), this fact-based drama offers a sobering reflection on the nature of protest and political action.
