The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel)

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff. Winner of the 1979 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

On the eve of World War II, three-year-old Oskar Matzerath decides not to grow any older or bigger. Armed with his piercing shriek and trusty tin drum, Oskar bears witness to history unfolding, and to the duplicity of the world of adults. "A combination of stunning logistics and technique and of humanistic content that is terrifically affecting." (Los Angeles Times)

Adapted from the novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Günter Grass.

Discussion following with Karrin Hanshew, Department of History, and Elizabeth Mittman, German Studies. In cooperation with One Book, One Community.
