FILM: IN MY ROOM

"A film of meticulous details and sly, subtle ironies... Köhler takes a disarmingly realistic and restrained approach to a fantastical premise: the eternally popular fantasy of the last man on earth."

Steffen Kaupp, Assistant Teaching Professor of German and Executive Director, Notre Dame Berlin Summer Programs, will introduce the film.

Lost in life and beset by a recent passing, Armin has nowhere to go and just as much to show for himself. Fate (or something like it) intervenes when Armin awakes one morning and discovers that seemingly all of humanity has disappeared, leaving him to his limited devices and opening the door for self-discovery — but the gift of maximum freedom bears complications.
