Downfall

  1. Monday, November 18, 2013 7:00 p.m.
Still image from the film Downfall
Set in Berlin in 1945, Traudl Junge, the final secretary for Adolf Hitler, tells of the Nazi dictator’s final days in his bunker at the end of WWII. Bruno Ganz gives a remarkable performance as Hitler in this ‘insider’s’ perspective into the final hours of desperation and madness as the Russian Army surrounds Berlin. Director Oliver Hirschbiegel presents a human character in Hitler, and not a demon, which created controversy around the film. Nominated in 2005 for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar®, it is in German language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)


This screening is part of the President's Choice Film Series: The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
