On the day Hitler assumes power, an affluent German-Jewish family comes together for dinner. Most of them—like many Germans at the time—do not take the Nazis seriously. When Leah announces her plans to emigrate to Palestine, her family talks her down. But when Michael indicates he’s actually an admirer of the National Socialist Movement, the family is on the brink of being torn apart.

A deeply personal and intimate chamber play, The Last Supper also acts as a warning to a world in which populist demagogues are on the rise.

Screenings followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Florian Frerichs.

Screenings followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Florian Frerichs.

Florian Frerichs started making films at an early age and founded his company Warnuts Entertainment with his former history teacher Dr. Stephan Warnatsch. After producing many short films, music videos and commercials and working as a line producer he directed the fake-trailer Alex that gives the impression as if a science-fiction reboot of A Clockwork Orange was in the works. With his films Phoenix and In the Ruins he continued creating dystopian sci-fi worlds. His short films won more than 30 prizes and awards at international festivals and his first feature film The Last Supper (Das letzte Mahl) was finished in late 2017.
