NEVER LOOK AWAY
Saturday 30 November 2019 at 1.30pm
From the director of The Lives of Others, this sweeping drama follows a young German through the decades – from a childhood witnessing the Nazi regime, to troubled romance in post-war East Berlin, then escape to the West where he becomes an acclaimed painter. Loosely based on the life of Gerhard Richter, Never Look Away combines affecting storytelling with an incisive understanding of how artists and society develop together, and was nominated for the Foreign Language and Cinematography Academy Awards.
