Spotlight Cinema: In My Room
October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ulrich Köhler’s In My Room is an exploration of fate, freedom, and self-discovery. Armin may be approaching middle age, but his life has been stalled for decades. All his problems are wiped away when he wakes up one day to find that all of humanity has inexplicably vanished. Apparently the last man on Earth, this schlubby slacker has no option but to transform into a rugged survivalist, begging the question: could the apocalypse be Armin’s second chance at life? In German with English subtitles.
“Horrifying, hilarious, and deeply humane.” – Sight & Sound
“Critic’s Choice! Wondrously wry… a mysterious and surprising movie about the frustration of the unseen and the poignancy of paths not taken.” – Los Angeles Times
