THE MILAN PROTOCOL (DAS MILAN-PROTOKOLL)
In Peter Ott’s 2017 film The Milan Protocol (Das Milan-Protokoll), Martina (Catrin Striebeck), a German doctor working and living in Iraqi Kurdistan, is kidnapped while traveling through ISIS-controlled territory in Syria. When news of her capture breaks, a range of global players try to take advantage of the hostage situation, including intelligence agencies in Germany, Turkey, and Iraq. Unsure of whom to trust, Martina starts to lose her ability to distinguish friend from foe.
Director Peter Ott will join moderator Elisabeth Weber (German & Slavic Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Department of German and Slavic Studies.
