Hamilton, Ohio. The Fitton Center for Creative Arts will screen the first foreign film of the Fitton Film Club series on Tuesday, January 22nd at 7:30pm. The Lives of Others (2006) is a German drama and thriller that is rated R.
In this film, dedicated Stasi officer Gerd Wiesler receives approval to spy on a famous playwright, who he doubts is loyal to the Communist Party in 1983 East Berlin. Wiesler faces conflicting loyalties when he unexpectantly becomes sympathetic to the playwright and his actress-lover Christa-Maria. His superior then takes a liking to the actress and orders him to get the playwright out of the way.
There will be a Film Club meeting to discuss next season and the voting and selection process prior to the film at 7:00pm and a post-film discussion after the screening. Everyone is welcome to attended.
