“What are we doing? How can we influence history? Can we influence society? That reflection for me is very interesting. Now we’re at a point where no one wants to hear about politics anymore or be an activist in any field, but nevertheless we feel that things can’t go on the way they do.”

So says New German Cinema legend Volker Schlöndorff in conversation with RS editor Jeff Reichert on the occasion of the release of his latest film, Strike. “A sort-of biopic about the life of Agnieszka Wolynicza (a terrific, bug-eyed Katharina Thalba), who played an important, if largely unknown, role in the Polish Solidarity movement,” Strike opens today in New York.
