Upon its release in 1929, Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front was quickly adapted into a film directed by Lewis Milestone, which won the Best Picture Oscar.

Nearly a century later, a new adaptation from Germany directed by Edward Berger arrives, complete with a parallel narrative not found in Remarque's novel. Still, the plot tracks the story familiar to many: A young German soldier enlists in World War I with idealism that cracks when confronted with the brutal realities of trench warfare. This film has now been nominated for the 2023 Academy Award for Best Picture. 

A panel discussion will follow the film screening.
