Part of: Back In The GDR: East German Film Season

Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck 
Starring Martina Gedeck, Ulrich Muhe, Sebastian Koch, Ulrich Tukur 

Winner of the best film in a foreign language Academy Award in 2007, The Lives of Others is set in East Berlin in 1984.  A well-known playwright, Dreyman, is put under Stasi surveillance, only for the Stasi officer to start to feel sympathy as he listens in on Dreyman and his girlfriend’s life.  


The screening will be followed by an interview with Antje K. Antje who was born in East Germany in the early 1960s and will talk about her life there, her run-ins with the authorities, and her eventual emigration in the late 1980s. Dr Richard Millington, Senior Lecturer in German at the University Of Chester will conduct the interview.
