Im Labyrinth des Schweigens - LABYRINTH OF LIES
Directed by Giulio Ricciarellitells
Running time: 121 min
Language: German with English sub-titles
A film about the story of a young public prosecutor who sets out on an uncompromising search for the truth in the late 1950s. Struggling against every imaginable obstacle, he comes up against his own limits as well as those of a system that makes it easier to forget than to remember. Against the background of true events, LABYRINTH OF LIES takes a very personal, particular look at
the lifestyle of the "economic miracle" years - the era of petticoats and rock'n'roll, in which people wanted to forge t the past and look ahead instead. The film takes an emotional and suspenseful look
at a widely unknown chapter of these years which fundamentally changed the way Germany treated its past. A gripping story of courage, responsibility and the struggle for ju
stice.
