MONDAY EVENING WORLD PREMIERE TV SCREENING ‘THE SAME SKY’

17 Oct 2016, 18:30 - 19:45

Grand Auditorium, Palais 1 - Doors open at 18.00

Language:
English

Presented by Beta Film

 

“The Same Sky”, set in the divided Berlin, was written and created by multi-award winning British screenwriter Paula Milne (“The Politicians Wife”, “The Virgin Queen”, “Endgame”). Academy Award nominee Oliver Hirschbiegel, who has already brought films like “Downfall” and, most recently, “13 Minutes” to the screens, once again dedicates himself with “The Same Sky” to an important chapter of contemporary German history, the 1970s. The distinguished cast includes Tom Schilling (“Generation War”), Sofia Helin (“The Bridge”), Friederike Becht (“The Reader”), Ben Becker (“Comedian Harmonists”), and others. “The Same Sky” centers around the relationship between an East German agent and his target in the West, the woman he has to seduce for the sake of his country – a relationship driven by passion but built on deceit. The six hour series recreates the uniquely charged atmosphere in the Cold War city by portraying the fates of two families, one on each side of the wall - surrounded by East German dissidents and informers, West German hustlers and agents as well as American and British diplomats. As the Iron Curtain seems impenetrable, the protagonists on either side of the wall seek security, humanity and freedom. They may have different systems and different lives, but they all share the same sky.

“The Same Sky” is an UFA FICTION / Beta Film production for ZDF in co-production with Mia Film in association with Rainmark Films.


Screening in the presence Paula Milne (creator/writer), cast members Sofia Helin, Friederike Becht, Tom Schilling and the producers of UFA, Beta and Rainmark.
