KINO! Film Salon: Never Look Away
KINO! Film Salon is a monthly online film club to discuss German film.
How it works: Each month we choose a German film or series currently available to stream, watch it independently, and come together for a hosted conversation with other fans of German film.
In our March session we’ll talk about the Academy Award-nominated drama Never Look Away (2018) by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (The Lives of Others) which participants can stream on U.S. streaming platforms including Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, and others.
Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, Never Look Away tells the story of a young art student, Kurt, who falls in love with fellow student Ellie. Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband, a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy their relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades before.
