Catch a screening this month of “The Captain” (Der Hauptmann), opening at Kendall Square theater on September 7th.

Based on an arresting true story, THE CAPTAIN follows a German army deserter after he finds an abandoned Nazi captain’s uniform in the final weeks of World War II. Emboldened by the authority the uniform grants him, he amasses a band of stragglers who cede to his command despite the suspicions of some. Citing direct orders from the Fuhrer himself, he soon takes command of a camp holding German soldiers accused of desertion and begins to dispense harsh justice.
