Never Look Away

A sweeping romantic historical drama, NEVER LOOK AWAY follows thirty years in the life of a great artist - loosely based on Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century's most admired visual artists - played by Tom Schilling (Woman in Gold, Generation War). The film goes from a childhood witnessing Nazi Germany, to post-war East Berlin, where he falls in love with a young woman (Paula Beer, Frantz, The Dark Valley, Transit) whose father is an ex-Nazi murderer in hiding (Sebastian Koch, The Lives of Others, Homeland, Blackbook), to escaping to the West at the time of the Berlin Wall, and ultimately being part of the exciting new movement in contemporary art.

This special screening covers the early and late sessions due to it's length - 3 hours 9 minutes - and we'll include an intermission.

“ There is horror and beauty in this film, and sometimes both at the same time...”

Peter Howell - Toronto Star

“ The epic-feeling story never flags, and despite big ideas about life, sin and artistic creativity, it remains watchable.”

Matthew Bond - The Mail on Sunday (UK)
