Die Fälschung / DIE FÄLSCHUNG
It Happened Yesterday

Hamburg-based journalist Georg Laschen arrives in Beirut where he meets an employee in the German embassy who wants to adopt a child and ends up helping her with the technicalities. Georg had until now wanted no ties to anything or anyone, but the cruelty of the Lebanese war and his relationship with Arianna force him to reconsider his stance. Learning that the girl has a Palestinian lover, he decides to leave the war-torn city and return to Hamburg where he refuses to release his information on the war to the press.
BIOGRAPHY
VOLKER SCHLÖNDORFF Weisbaden, 1939. Worked in France as an assistant to Resnais, Malle and Melville. His first work, Der junge Törless (Young Torless, 1966) evinced an enormous sense of narrative structure and clear-cut political perspective. Strohfeuer (Summer Lightening, 1971), Die verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum (The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum, 1975) and Die Blechtrommel (The Tin Drum, 1978) earned him a leading place in the generation of so-called New German Cinema directors.
