Pop Up Kino is a monthly film series celebrating German cinema from the East to the West and from the Weimar period to the Contemporary. Throughout the year a curated selection of films will be screened at MATCH and introduced by a special guest presenter.
Continuing with a selection of East German films, Pop Up Kino presents Kurt Maetzig’s The Rabbit is Me.
The Rabbit is Me
Directed by Kurt Maetzig
A young student has an affair with a judge. She learns that he once sentenced her brother for political reasons and eventually confronts him, accusing him of opportunism and hypocrisy.
A sardonic portrayal of the German Democratic Republic's judicial system and its social implications, the film was banned by officials as an anti-socialist, pessimistic, and revisionist attack on the state.
