STP-on-Demand: The German Lesson (2019), dir. Christian Schwochow
Germany, just after the Second World War. Siggi Jepsen, a young man in juvenile detention, must write an essay on “The Joys Of Duty” as part of his punishment. His memories focus on his relationship with his father, Jens Ole Jepsen, a police officer of the village, and Max Ludwig Nansen, a family friend and expressionist painter.
Jens dedicates himself totally and meticulously to the duties of his work: to enforce the will of the Nazi Party. More specifically: to enforce the ban on the possession and creation of all modern art. This directly affects Max, who resists, despite the dire consequences. Each man enlists Siggi to help his differing agenda. Caught between his father’s loyalty to the laws of the Nazi Party and Max’s passion for expressionism, Siggi must choose between fitting in and resisting.
