January 22: The Lives of Others (2006) — A drama set in East Germany in 1984, this film begins when Gerd Wiesler, an officer with the East German secret police, attends a play written by Georg Dreyman, who is considered by many to be the ultimate example of the loyal citizen. Wiesler has a gut feeling that Dreyman can’t be as ideal as he seems, and believes surveillance is needed. The more time Wiesler spends listening in, the more he comes to care about his subjects. Hosted by Liz Richmond.
