Two by Brasch
The German Film Office presents two films by Thomas Brasch, a German poet and dramatist whose life and art resist easy categorization. Angels of Iron and The Passenger: Welcome to Germany are both jarring meditations on German history that premiered at Cannes in the 1980s but have rarely been shown in the U.S. since. These films are part of a retrospective that aims to reintroduce U.S. audiences to Brasch’s work, with free streaming available across the U.S.
