Winner of three awards at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, including the prestigious Palme d'Or, and nominated for an Oscar in the 2010 Academy Awards, this provocative and haunting film from writer-director Michael Haneke ("Funny Games," "Caché," "The Piano Teacher") is stunningly photographed in black and white. Set in a village in Protestant northern Germany from 1913 to 1914, on the eve of World War I, the story revolves around the children and teenagers of a choir run by the village schoolteacher. Strange accidents and misfortunes befall the citizens of Eichwald, gradually taking on the character of a punishment ritual. The film, which is rated R, runs for 2 hours and 25 minutes and is fully subtitled.
Müller will also facilitate a discussion following the film.
