Never Look Away
Writer-director Henckel von Donnersmarck's third feature film project sees him shooting in his native German language for the first time since his 2006 Oscar®-winning debut "The Lives of Others" (2006). Tom Schilling ("Oh Boy", 2012) heads up a glittering "Who's Who" of the German acting world cast as the young artist Kurt Barnert who fled to West Germany, but continues to be tormented by experiences made during his childhood and youth in the Third Reich and under the GDR regime. When he meets the student Ellie, Kurt is convinced that he has met the love of his life and begins to create paintings that mirror not only his own fate, but also the traumas of an entire generation.
