Synopsis:

A profoundly powerful film and a key work of the New German Cinema. Volker Schlöndorff and Margarethe von Trotta’s The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum unfurls in a climate of fear and paranoia, as Angela Winkler’s titular character finds her life slowly torn apart following a romantic encounter with a man the authorities suspect of being a terrorist. Hounded by the police as well as an unscrupulous tabloid journalist, the innocent Katharina is pushed to the very limits in this biting critique of unchecked state power and media manipulation.

Part of the retrospective States of Danger and Deceit: European Thrillers in the 1970s (presented by HOME / supported by the BFI). The full list of titles in the retrospective at LIFF 2017 is as follows: The Day of the Jackal, The Deputy, Don't Torture a Duckling, The Flight, Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion, The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum, The Man on the Roof, The Mattei Affair, Seven Days in January, State of Siege, Z.
