Jakob der L├╝gner (Jacob the Liar)
Dir. Frank Beyer, East Germany, 1974, color, 96 min (German with English subtitles).

Jacob invents news stories to bolster the spirits of the other Jews living in a Polish ghetto under Nazi occupation. The bitter comedy, written by Jurek Becker, is loaded with human quirks and nuances. Nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1977, this film was remade in Hollywood in 1999, starring Robin Williams.

The film will be introduced by Christine Becker, the writer's widow. Christine Becker has edited several volumes of her late husband's works, which have appeared in German and in English and also as audiobooks.

Sponsored by the Dept. of Language, Culture, and Communication and Modern & Classical Languages.

It is free and open to the public.
