KI Movie Nights are back with a stellar lineup of films for 2013!
January 24 - Berlin ’36 Inspired by the true story of Jewish high jumper Gretel Bergmann, this film replays a remarkable piece of forgotten Olympic history. Bergmann was considered a top contender for the gold medal at the 1936 Summer Games in Nazi-controlled Berlin. Facing threats of an Olympic boycott if Jewish athletes were barred from competing, Bergmann is invited to training camp. However, the Nazis conspire to replace her with an unknown uber-athlete, Marie Ketteler, who has a secret, only to be revealed years later. The two athletes forge an unexpected friendship. This powerful film celebrates triumph over tyranny.
February 28 - Margin Call A respected financial company is downsizing and one of the victims is the risk management division head, who was working on a major analysis just when he was let go. His protégé completes the study late into the night and then frantically calls his colleagues in about the company's financial disaster he has discovered. What follows is a long night of panicked double checking and double dealing as the senior management prepare to do whatever it takes to mitigate the debacle to come even as the handful of conscientious comrades find themselves dragged along into the unethical abyss.
Q&A with the film’s executive producer, KI congregant Kirk D’Amico.
April 25 - Nicky's Family tells the nearly forgotten story of Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II.
May 23 - The Invisible War An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its profound personal and social consequences.
