World View: Cultures Healing

The Lives of Others

The World View Film series, hosted by Global & Cultural Affairs in ARTS Missoula, is back at the Roxy Theater this fall, featuring four movies about "Cultures Healing." All screenings are free.

At once a political thriller and human drama, The Lives of Others begins in East Berlin in 1984, five years before Glasnost and the fall of the Berlin Wall and ultimately takes us to 1991, in what is now the reunited Germany. The Lives of Others traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Muhe, best known for his lead roles in Michael Haneke's Funny Games and as Dr. Mengele in Costa-Gavras' Amen, a highly skilled officer who works for the Stasi, East Germany's all-powerful secret police. His mission is to spy on a celebrated writer and actress couple, Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) and Christa-Maria Sieland (Martina Gedeck).
