BELOVED SISTERS

DIRECTOR: DOMINIK GRAF - GERMANY

In this sumptuous costume drama set in late-18th-century Germany, two aristocratic sisters find themselves drawn inexorably to the young ‘Sturm und Drang’ poet Friedrich Schiller and daringly forge a lifelong secret triangle. When younger sister Charlotte first meets Schiller in 1788, he is a penniless dramatist whose early controversial writings and penury render him an unsuitable husband. But Charlotte and her married sister Caroline discover an intoxicating kinship with Schiller and his Romantic ideals of universal knowledge and the transformational power of literature.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

DIRECTOR: DIETRICH BRÜGGEMANN - GERMANY

Devout teenager Maria and her family belong to the ultra-conservative Society of St. Paul. Maria is intent on walking a godly path, and yet she has questions. Why would God give her brother a learning disability? Why does her mother forbid her from seeing a boy from a different church? As the contradictions of devout faith and modern life multiply, Maria eschews the easy way out and chooses to follow the hardest road of all—that of the savior, with all the pain and sacrifice it may entail. Told in single-shot tableaux that parallel Christ’s journey to his own crucifixion, Brüggemann’s...
