Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, Never Look Away tells the story of a young art student, Kurt (Tom Schilling) who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie (Paula Beer). Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.

Nominated for multiple awards, including the Golden Lion at the 7th Venice International Film Festival and two Academy Awards, Never Look Away is tremendously compelling, as it explores the personal, political and art through a rich and emotionally driven drama, scored by Max Richter.
