In 1984 in East Germany the secret police, or Stasi were everywhere, watching everything. This film details the activities of one officer, Wiesler, as he monitored a popular playwright. Wiesler doesn’t believe that Dreyman could possibly be as pro the party as he makes out. Too arrogant. So he suggests keeping him under surveillance, just in case. His superior officer doesn’t agree, at first, but then Minister Bruno Hempf mentions that perhaps he isn’t such a fan, and that perhaps Dreyman isn’t a favourite. It turns out that Hempf is more than interested in Dreyman’s girlfriend, the actress Christa-Maria Sieland, and so would like nothing better than to remove his rival by having him arrested and taken away.
RT @rabiasquared Shameful. No surprise. The system does not hold itself accountable. That's why it must be reimagined. This is why we need District and States Attorneys who aren't aligned with law enforcement, who come from civil rights and criminal defense backgrounds, not career prosecutors. twitter.com/AP/status/1308…
RT @cfmmuk On breaking news stories, it is wrong for newspapers to headline stories on unverified news. Again & again, they are proven incorrect. Here the claim a man shouted Allahu Akbar as part of a bomb threat at the Eiffel Tower is called "fake news" by police & Tower spokespeople pic.twitter.com/GgiALVMzex
