 In partnership with the German American Heritage Center, the film What to Do in Case of Fire [Was tun, wenn's brennt?] (2002, 101 minutes, rated R for some drug use and language)  will be shown.   Professor Michael Hustedde from St. Ambrose University will provide a short introduction.  “When a twenty-year-old bomb explodes in an abandoned mansion in modern-day Berlin, the evidence points to a notorious late 1980’s anarchist group. As the police start looking for them, the six former rebels reunite for the first time in 12 years to come up with a plan to protect themselves. But sparks fly when the group must reconcile their youthful ideals with their new lives and pick up the pieces of the relationships they left behind.” (container)
