Never Look Away

  • Carbon Arc Cinema 1747 Summer St Halifax, NS Canada (map)

Dir.  Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck / Germany / 2018 / 188m / R

German with English subtitles

Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, NEVER LOOK AWAY tells the story of a young art student, Kurt who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie. Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband, a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.

Award winning write/director of The Lives of Others, Von Dommersmarck discovered the life of renowned artist Gerhard Richter and had the inspiration for an epic film that would include art, creativity and a journey of modern German History from World War II to the Berlin Wall and the meeting of East and West. The result is outstanding.
