Stray Cat Film Center and Goethe Pop Up Kansas City invite you to What’s left? Films from former East Germany, a series of film screenings curated by Dr. Larson Powell, Professor of Film Studies at University of Missouri–Kansas City.
This week, the Goethe Pop Up welcomes all for a screening of the movie Barbara (2012) by German director Christian Petzold. The East-West melodrama tells the story of a doctor who, after requesting to leave East Berlin, finds herself banished to a small town in East Germany, reckoning with GDR oppression and the hard choices dealt to her.
The movie is shown in German language with English subtitles.
