Directed by Robin Witt, visiting assistant professor in FTT, “A Bright Room Called Day” takes place in 1930s Berlin at the time when the Weimer Republic weakens and Adolf Hitler’s Nazis seize power. The tragicomic story unfolds as it follows a close-knit group of artists and activists in their lofty discussions on impending political catastrophe and the nature of evil in the world.
