When fleeing Paris after the German invasion, Georg (Rogowski) escapes to Marseille. With nowhere to turn, he is confined to the corridors of a small hotel, the consulates, cafés and bars that line the harbour. Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie (Beer). Based on the novel by Anna Seghers, Transit, directed by Christian Petzold (Phoenix), tells the story of a nearly impossible love amid escape, exile, and a longing for a place to call home.
The 18:15 screening on Tue 20 Aug will be introduced by Maggie Hoffgen, Freelance Film Educator.
