Franz Rogowski made an indelible impression last year in Michael Haneke’s Happy End. He returns this weekend in a German Currents double bill featuring the local premiere of TRANSIT—the new film from Christian Petzold. This thriller addressing themes of identity and morality in times of advancing totalitarianism co-stars Paula Beer.
The evening will open with another Los Angeles premiere: Thomas Stuber’s IN DEN GÄNGEN/IN THE AISLES, co-starring Rogowski and Sandra Hüller—whose arresting portrayal of the daughter of the title character in Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann is a comic highlight of recent world cinema.
Saturday, October 20, at 6:30 pm.
6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles.
