    Director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's insightful drama about the system of observation in the former Eastern Germany. Das Leben der Anderen is a powerful portrait of an opressive society as well as a moving character study.

    Michael Haneke's Oscar nominated film Das Weisse Band is a powerful tale about authority, guilt and violence. Shot in spellbinding Black & White, Das Weisse Band depicts family life and society just before the beginning of World War I and serves as a striking analysis of the origins of terrorism.
