Movie Night: Egon Günther's "When You're Older Adam" says
Join the DEFA Film Library, Kanopy and the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta for the screening of Egon Günther's "When You're Older Adam" with an introduction and Q&A by Skyler J. Arndt-Briggs, DEFA Film Library at UMass Amherst.

In the East German social satire "When You're Older Dear Adam" (dir. Egon Günther, 1966/1990), a boy finds a flashlight that makes people float when they lie. The film was banned in 1966, in the midst of sweeping restrictions in the cultural sector. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, those restoring the film decided to work traces of excisions and damage into the finished print. The result is an unparalleled historical document inscribed in film.

Please join us at 6:30pm for a reception with the film starting at 7:00pm

The film will be shown in German with English subtitles. Approximate length: 70 minutes.

Admission: Complimentary
