(Oct. 9 & 14) — In Christian Petzold’s brilliant and haunting adaptation of German-Jewish novelist Anna Seghers’s 1942 book "Transit Visa," a hollowed-out European refugee (Franz Rogowski), who has escaped from two concentration camps, arrives in Marseille assuming the identity of a dead novelist whose papers he is carrying. There he enters the arid, threadbare world of the refugee community, and becomes enmeshed in the lives of a desperate young mother and son and a mysterious woman named Marie (Paula Beer). "Transit "is a film told in two tenses: 1940 and right now, historic past and immediate present.

Q&A with Franz Rogowski on October 9.
