The Brasch Family
As part of the Thomas Brasch retrospective, we’re screening The Brasch Family at the Center for Jewish History. In this documentary, director Annekatrin Hendel delivers a portrait of three Brasch family generations as a microcosm of societal tensions — between East and West, art and politics, communism and religion, love and betrayal, utopia and self-destruction.

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. Please register to attend.
