This special advance screening will take place from London’s world renowned Imperial War Museum giving audiences around the country the opportunity to experience a private view of some of the museum's most famous exhibits, including the original Reichs Chancellery Eagle, ahead of a screening of this film starring Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson and Daniel Bruhl. The screening will be followed by a lively, inspiring and timely discussion prompted by the incredible true story contained in the film of a couple's resistance to the Nazi regime. The event participants will be exploring themes of ‘people power’ and how small scale protest can instigate a social movement, also explored in the museum's current exhibition ‘People Power: Fighting For Peace’.

The Film
Berlin, 1940. The city is paralyzed by fear. Otto and Anna Quangel (Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson) are a working class couple living in a shabby apartment trying, like everyone else, to stay out of trouble under Nazi rule. But when their only child is killed fighting at the front, their loss drives them to an extraordinary act of resistance. They start to drop anonymous postcards all over the city attacking Hitler and his regime. If caught, it means certain execution. Soon their campaign comes to the attention of Gestapo inspector Escherich (Bruhl) and a murderous game of cat and mouse begins.
