Film. Young Törless

-

Location: Browning Cinema in DPAC

At an Austrian boys’ boarding school in the early 1900s, shy, intelligent Törless observes the sadistic behavior of his fellow students, doing nothing to help a victimized classmate—until the torture goes too far. Adapted from Robert Musil’s acclaimed novel, Young Törless launched the New German Cinema movement and garnered the 1966 Cannes Film Festival International Critics’ Prize for first-time director Volker Schlöndorff.Free tickets available at the Nanovic Institute for European Studies (1060 Nanovic Hall) or the DPAC ticket office.
