On February 15, 7:45 at Quadra Community Centre, Friday Flicks presents The Silent Revolution.
In 1956 East Germany, a group of senior high schoolers demonstrate solidarity with recent victims of the Hungarian Revolution. Their brief, silent protest ignites underlying tensions and leads to grave consequences.
Deftly weaving together threads of political tension, adolescent rebellion, and institutional menace, the viewer is asked to consider the connection between a nation’s identity and its influence on the identities of its young people, who are just beginning to question their place in society.
