24. February 2022 | 20:15 - 22:45


USA 1998. Dir: Mimi Leder
Cast: Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni, Elijah Wood, Maximilian Schell, Morgan Freeman, Vanessa Redgrave. 120 mins. 35mm. Original language version

A 14-year-old amateur astronomer discovers an unknown object in the sky, which reveals itself to be a giant comet hurtling toward Earth. Mankind has a few months to save itself. The suspenseful staging of the mission and the preparatory emergency measures on Earth make DEEP IMPACT a disaster film in a class of its own.

Guest: Dr. Juliane Blank (literature and cultural studies scholar at Saarland University) talks with curator Stefanie Plappert about chance and free decisions in the face of catastrophe.
