Face to Face with German Talent: The German Film Weekend


A stand-up comedian called Astrid learns mid-pregnancy that her foetus has both Down’s syndrome and a heart defect. She must wrestle with whether or not to have a late-term abortion, in a tense, hot-button drama powered by anguished work from Julia Jentsch.


Join award-winning lead actress Julia Jentsch (Sophie Scholl – The Final Days, The Edukators) who will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening which will be moderated by The Telegraph’s film critic Tim Robey.
