JOHNSBURG - On Saturday, April 18, Our Town Theatre Group will show its April foreign film, the German drama The Lives of Others. The R-rated film will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek.
Directed by Florian von Donnersmarck, the 2006 film returns spectators to the years when Berlin was a divided city. The plot involves the monitoring of the East German cultural scene by the Stasi (the GDR's secret police). A playwright is surveilled because a government minister is interested in the playwright's girlfriend. The film is a consideration of blacklisting and officially sanctioned intimidation.
Admission is free, with a $5 donation suggested. For further information, contact Ann Hornbeck at 251-0856 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
