For her VCULT course "World Cinema and Visual Culture", Professor Alice Kuzniar is hosting weekly film screenings. Everyone is welcome to join!
This week's screening is the German movie Downfall (Der Untergang) from 2004. The movie shows the downfall of the Third Reich and the death of the dictator Adolf Hitler. It was controversially discussed for showing a human side of Hitler but won several prizes and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 77th Academy Awards. It was also the source of a series of Internet memes. Watch the trailer below (with English subtitles).
The screening will be prefaced with an introduction by Alice Kuzniar.
