Never Look Away


Talented artist Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling) has fled East Germany into the West, but his mind remains flooded with the memories of his childhood and adolescence in both the Nazi era and the GDR. We are swept along through his younger days - as fascists rule and fall, young love blossoms and buried secrets linger close-by. Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (The Lives of Others) returns with this powerful, beautifully-shot inter-generational epic, spanning three decades of 20th century Germany. Never Look Away is loosely based on the life of artist Gerhard Richter and was nominated for two Academy Awards in 2019, including for cinematography.
