Karl Marx City

Karl Marx City
  •  Documentary Competition
  •  Germany, United States

A personal documentary and paranoid thriller rolled into one, Karl Marx City follows director Petra Epperlein’s investigation into her father’s suicide and the rumor that he may have worked as a spy for the Stasi in East Germany. Uncovering the truth—as fictionalized in The Lives of Others—through Stasi archives and former agents, Epperlein takes us on a haunting trip back to the GDR, peppered with dark ironies and the enduring legacy of the surveillance state.

Director/producer Petra Epperlein is scheduled to attend both screenings.
