German Film Viewing on the Mount Vernon Campus

Trace of Stones is a 1966 East German film.

With overtones of the American Western, Trace of Stones was banned in 1966 and only re-released after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The film was criticized for exposing the gap between the East Germany’s Communist party and the working class it claimed to represent. Set on a construction site that is plagued by material shortages and incompetent managers, it depicts how a charismatic but unruly crew leader learns to work with new female engineer, whom he loves, and the new Party secretary, in love with the same woman.

The UHP will be hosting a viewing of this film on the Mount Vernon Campus on 02/19 at 6:30PM in Ames B101!

This viewing is part of Professor Stein’s German Film Series, which will be held throughout the semester on the Mount Vernon Campus. Future films include The Lives of Others (3/26), Barbara (4/2), and Goodbye, Lenin! (4/9). Look out for more information in the Newsflash!
