Join us this Friday, February 12 at 8:00PM in USDAN 108 for Germany’s newest TV series Deutschland ’83 (English subtitles).
In a divided Germany in 1983, naive 24-year-old East German soldier Martin Rauch is pulled from his benign post as a border guard and given a new assignment: undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service in West Germany. Hiding in plain sight as Moritz Stamm in the West German army, Rauch must gather NATO military secrets. As he veers between father figures, love interests, and East and West Germany, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal. The coming-of-age story — created by American journalist and author Anna Winger and her German husband, Jörg Winger — is the first German-language drama to be aired on a major U.S. network.
