The Jewish Holocaust Centre Film Club will be screening "The Wave" (Die Welle), Germany 2008, 107 min, German (English Subtitles).
Directed by Dennis Gansel

High school teacher, Rainer Wegner, may be popular with the students, but he’s also unorthodox. He’s forced to teach about autocracy for the school’s project week. He’s less than enthusiastic at first, but the response of the students is surprising to say the least. He forces the students to become more invested in the prospect of self-rule, and soon the class project has its own power and eerily starts to resemble Germany’s past.
