Young Törless (1966) <h4>Nanovic Institute Film Series</h4>
Director Volker Schlöndorff scheduled to appear in person!

Volker Schlöndorff is arguably one of the most important and internationally successful German directors. Known for adapting classic German-language literature as he did in this film, Schlöndorff will appear to discuss his work at the screening, which is in conjunction with the weekend’s 1968 conference.

The film depicts an Austrian boys' boarding school in the early 1900s, where a shy, intelligent Törless observes the sadistic behavior of his fellow students, doing nothing to help a victimized classmatee—until the torture goes too far. Adapted from Robert Musil's acclaimed novel, Young Törless helped launch the New German Cinema movement and garnered the 1966 Cannes Film Festival International Critics' Prize for a first-time director.

Charlie vs. Goliath (2017) <h4>New at the Browning</h4>
This feature-length documentary tracks an unlikely politician’s struggle to shake up the establishment. It would be hard to find a more unlikely candidate than Charlie Hardy, a 75-year-old former Catholic priest who spent nearly a decade serving the poor while living in a cardboard shack in a Venezuelan slum.

In 2011, Charlie returns to his hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is shocked to see poverty, hunger, and homelessness. After being snubbed by his congressional representatives, Charlie decides to run for office himself in 2014 and manages to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate. His Republican opponent has a $3 million war chest and Charlie’s advisors urge him to focus his efforts on fundraising. Instead, Charlie rejects money from special interests and makes campaign finance reform a key part of his platform. The film provides an intimate portrayal of this resolute and uniquely charismatic septuagenarian while revealing an inside look at a campaign fueled by hope rather than money.
