Foreign Film: Never Look Away at the Rheem Theatre

  • May17
    Friday All Day
  • Rheem Theatre 350 Park Street
    Moraga, CA 94556 United States

German artist Kurt Barnert has escaped East Germany and now lives in West Germany, but is tormented by his childhood under the Nazis and the GDR-regime.

A sweeping romantic historical drama, Never Look Away follows thirty years in the life of a great artist – loosely based on Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century’s most admired visual artists – played by Tom Schilling (Woman in Gold, Generation War). The film goes from a childhood witnessing Nazi Germany, to post-war East Berlin, where he falls in love with a young woman (Paula Beer, Frantz, The Dark Valley, Transit) whose father is an ex-Nazi murderer in hiding (Sebastian Koch, The Lives of Others, Homeland, Blackbook), to escape to the West at the time of the Berlin Wall, and ultimately being part of the exciting new movement in contemporary art.
