Curveball – Wir Machen die Wahrheit (Curveball – A True Story Unfortunately): dir Johannes Naber (2020)

3 December @ 7.00 pm - 8.00 pm

Free but pre-register

A bleakly black comedy, based on true events, that has a German intelligence operative convinced that anthrax is still being produced in Iraq. Then he’s assigned as case officer for an Iraqi asylum seeker (codenamed Curveball) who claims to have worked on Saddam Hussein’s bioweapons. The hunt for proof is muddied by the CIA, the German government, and just about everyone else trying to use the incredible story for their own purposes. Thus, bit by bit, the confected story becomes reality and a lie becomes the truth …

In German with English subtitles. The film is part of the second German Film Festival organised by Goethe-Institut Gulf Region; 11 films will be screened in two locations, Cinema Akil in Dubai and Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi.
