The next film in the Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series will be Phoenix, screening at 1:00 pm on June 25, 2017, in the Holocaust Museum’s theatre in the Jewish Federation Kopolow Building (12 Millstone Campus Drive). A brilliant performance by Nina Hoss and stunning cinematography mark this complex film about a woman disfigured during the Holocaust, who returns to Germany. She assumes another identity and seeks to discover if the man she loved betrayed her. Produced in 2014, Phoenix will screen in German, with English subtitles, with a running time of 98 minutes.
Introductory remarks and a post screening discussion will be facilitated by Jennifer Kapczynski, associate professor of German, Washington University. Dr. Kapczynski’s research focuses primarily on 20th century German film. She is the author of The German Patient: Crisis and Recovery in Postwar Culture (2008) and the co-editor of two books: A New History of German Cinema, (2012) and Persistent Legacy: the Holocaust and German Studies (2016). Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public, although reservations are required.
