A Bright Room Called Day (2013)
This thought-provoking and boldly political effort by Tony Kushner (Pulitzer prize winning playwright for Angels in America) recounts the rise of Weimar Berlin’s art culture, just at the moment when an obscure and poorly educated Hitler began appealing to populist movements in Germany. More than a simple treatment of a tragic moment in history, A Bright Room Called Day investigates how common Berliners were unable to act against a rising fascist threat, or chose not to.
