Pop-Up Kino presents Kurt Maetzig's The Rabbit is Me. A young student has an affair with a judge. She learns that he once sentenced her brother for political reasons and eventually confronts him, accusing him of opportunism and hypocrisy. A sardonic portrayal of the German Democratic Republic's judicial system and its social implications. The film was banned by officials as an anti-socialist, pessimistic, and revisionist attack on the state.
There will be a brief discussion on the film prior to the screening. This discussion is open to the public.
