Christian Petzold's new film TRANSIT will be opening in New York on March 1 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the IFC Center.

The German Consulate General Recommends:

Past and present merge in this alluring puzzle from Christian Petzold, which follows Georg (Franz Rogowski), a refugee from fascism who pursues Marie (Paula Beer), the wife of the dead man whose identity he has assumed.

As fascism spreads, German refugee Georg (Franz Rogowski) flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of the dead writer whose transit papers he is carrying. Living among refugees from around the world, Georg falls for Marie (Paula Beer), a mysterious woman searching for her husband—the man whose identity he has stolen. Adapted from Anna Segher’s 1944 novel, TRANSIT shifts the original story to the present, blurring periods to create a timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people.
