SCHLONDORFF'S FIRST FILM TO BE SCREENED FEB. 19

The series "New German Film: Beyond Fascism" continues Tuesday, Feb. 19 with a screening of Volker Schlondorff's first feature film, "Young Toerless" (1966) at 4:20 p.m. in room 107 of the Diehn Center. It is free to members of the campus community.

The film was a milestone of the new German cinema and crystallized the emotions of a country still struggling to come to terms with its recent past of Nazi horror. Shown in German with English subtitles, the film is a chilling parable of how people could come to accept the worst in human behavior.

Heidi Schlipphacke, assistant professor of foreign languages and literatures, will introduce the films. For more information call 683-6372.
