Winner of the 2008 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, "The Counterfeiters" tells the true story of Salomon Sorowitsch (Karl Markovics), a swindler who made a name for himself as Berlin's "King of the Counterfeiters." However, his life of women and easy money is cut short when he's arrested and placed in a Nazi concentration camp. With the German army on the verge of bankruptcy, Sorowitsch makes a sobering deal with his captors. Gary Schmidt, CCU professor of German and chair of the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, will lead a discussion following the screening.
