Transit

08:30 pm to 10:15 pm
BAFT (Bloomington Academy of Film and Theatre, 411 E. 7th Street
https://cicadacinema.bigcartel.com/product/tickets

Cicada Cinema is delighted to be teaming up with the BAFT (Bloomington Academy of Film & Theatre) to screen TRANSIT, the brilliant and haunting new feature film from director Christian Petzold! We hope you’ll join us on Friday, May 24th for the Bloomington premiere of this critically-acclaimed film critics have hailed as “Casablanca as written by Kafka” (Indiewire).

Synopsis: 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 day, blurring periods to create a timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people.
Starring: Franz Rogowski, Paula Beer, Godehard Giese, Lilien Batman, and Maryam Zaree.
