A 1984 East Berlin simple surveillance assignment: Capt. Gerd Wiesler, a Stasi officer and a specialist in surveillance, has been assigned to keep an eye on Georg Dreyman, a respected playwright, and his actress girlfriend, Christa-Maria Sieland.

Das weisse Band eine deutsche Kindergeschichte by Michael Haneke( Visual )

86 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the children and teenagers of a church and school choir run by the village schoolteacher and their families: The Baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers. Strange accidents occur and gradually assume the characteristics of a punishment ritual. Who could be responsible for such bizarre transgressions? Acclaimed director Michael Haneke (Hidden, Funny Games) won the Palme d'Or at the 2009 Cannes FIlm Festival for what is considered to be an instant classic of world cinema. The White Ribbon is Haneke's masterpiece and a film that will be talked about for years to come." --Kanopy website

Taking sides der Fall Furtwängler( Visual )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An American officer is sent to interrogate the great German conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler about his support of the Nazi regime during the Third Reich. At a time when other artists were forced to leave Germany or went into voluntary exile in protest, Furtwängler chose to stay behind and continue his career becoming one of the Nazi's foremost cultural assets. In a dramatic confrontation, the US officer goes up against the revered artist, calling into question his moral integrity and his artistic obligations. With the postwar world inclined to forgive and forget the officer's single-minded pursuit of justice makes for a suspenseful, troubling drama, in which the role of the artist in a criminal society is argued forcefully from both sides."--Container
