'The Fabulous Picture Show - If Not Us, Who?'

You are invited to join us for screenings of films as part of The Fabulous Picture Show, where our audience attend the screenings and discussions of forthcoming cutting-edge feature films from around the world.

On Wednesday 30th March 2011, we will be joined by director Andres Veiel for a screening of 'If Not Us, Who?'

In the early 60s, Bernward Vesper and fellow university student Gudrun Ensslin begin a passionate love in the stifling atmosphere of provincial West Germany. Dedicated to the power of the written word, Bernward and Gudrun found a publishing house whose first publication is, paradoxically to many, a controversial past work of Bernward's ostracized father, an infamous Nazi author. Bernward defends his father's writing ability, even if he is haunted by his father's suspicious past. Gudrun, too, vehemently questions her own father's role during Hitler's Third Reich. Sensitive to the increasing restlessness of the times, the fiery couple lash out at the conformism and denial around them. After their tumultuous relationship nearly ends due to Bernward's infidelities, they start anew with a move to West Berlin in 1964. Joining forces with leftist writers and political activists, they become part of the spreading global uprising: "If not us, who; If not now, when?" But discontentment with the world takes its toll on their tumultuous relationship. By the late 60s, Gudrun has joined rebellious Andreas Baader's pro-violence cause and Bernward risks his sanity by using psychedelic drugs in his struggles to finally write the novel committed to changing the world. Based on the emotional true story of an explosive era.

After the screening, audience members will have the chance to discuss the film with director Andres Veiel, in a Q & A hosted by journalist Amanda Palmer.

These are nice events but they do over book them and turn people away everytime, also you will be filmed for the Q&A and possibly asked to do a vox pop, but they do provide food and drink, they stick you in the bar area that has a seated lounge area with a buffet and film you chatting its all pretty fake but fun. Timewise budget for 12- 4:30pm, thats if they don't have camera or sound problems.
