FILM
Tonight the series “Torn Curtain: Two Germanys on Film” kicks off at LACMA. These are 16 films that were made between the end of World War II and the fall of the Berlin Wall. “The opening weekend presents four Trummerfilme or ‘rubble films’—one West German, one East German, and two American—shot immediately after the war amid the ruins of German cities.” At 7:30 pm is The Murderers are Among Us (Die Mörder sind unter uns) followed by In Those Days (In jenen Tagen) at 9:15 pm. The film series is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures” showing through April 19, 2009 at BCAM.LEARNING
