Transit screening (2019-Mar-22 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Friday, March 22, 2019 @ 19:3021:11

The Dryden will screen Transit (Christian Petzold, Germany/France 2018, 101 min., DCP, German w/subtitles).

Christian Petzold has provided some of the most provocative cinematic drama in recent years. In this brilliant and haunting modern-day adaptation of Anna Seghers's 1944 novel, Transit Visa, Georg, a German refugee, flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of a recently deceased writer whose papers he is carrying. In the port city, he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming enmeshed in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Marie. The culmination of a makeshift trilogy that the director calls "Love in the Time of Oppressive Systems," this is a fascinating film that matches his previous work.
