The White Ribbon

  1. Tuesday, January 28, 2014 7:00 p.m.
Still image from the film The White Ribbon
A series of (more or less) mysterious acts of violence disturbs a traditional, authoritarian village cosmos in Northern Germany on the eve of World War One. Haneke’s film traces this world through the (ingeniously, if counterintuitively) cooperating forces of a retrospective narrator and a striking editing regime, which draws the audience into the unfolded scenarios. While fans of Haneke’s oeuvre will know better than to expect a less-than-disturbing film, this masterpiece in black-and-white also surprises with moments of tenderness and respect for the complexity of its actors’ experiences in their circumscribed world. In German, Italian and Polish languages with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)

WWI: 100 Years Removed

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, this multi-semester film series explores the conditions leading up to war, the harsh realities of wartime, and its effects on people and nations around the world. These cinematic reflections offer a chance to revisit the way war and violence were imagined in an earlier age, and also remind us how men and women throughout the globe remain burdened by this problem today. Each film will be introduced by a faculty expert. This film series is presented by the School of Global and International Studies and IU Cinema.
