Anonyma, Max Faerberboeck, Germany 2008

Anonyma, by Max Faerberboeck, is based on Marta Hillers' memoirs, and deals with her experiences in immediate post-war Berlin: the occupation of the city by the Red Army and particularly, how Hillers became a victim of rape by Russian soldiers. Acclaimed German actress Nina Hoss plays the lead, supported by a stellar supporting cast that includes former Fassbinder muse Irm Herrmann and Juliane Koehler of The Downfall fame.

Anonyma opens on 5 February 2010 across the UK.
