Still image from the film Barbara
Set in 1980 East Germany, Barbara is a story of self-sacrifice, freedom and quiet heroism at a time and place when such values are at a premium. Barbara Wolff is a talented young doctor who has applied for an exit visa from the GDR. As punishment, she has been transferred from her prestigious post in Berlin to a small pediatric hospital in the country. Though she is constantly aware of the shadowy presence of Stasi officers, she continues to plan dangerous assignations with her lover, with whom she plans to escape to Poland. Barbara is also a healer who truly cares for the patients at her new post. Personal ethics are called into question as her situation evolves. German language with English subtitles. (2K DCP. 105 min. Rated PG-13.)


International Arthouse Series screenings are cosponsered by the Ryder Film Series and Ryder Magazine. Screenings of Barbara are also sponsored in part by the IU DEFA Project and the Department of Germanic Studies.
