The Edukators is a 2004 film directed by Hans Weingartner.

Cinematic Responses to RAF - Terrorism

Jan and Peter are best friends and revolutionary activists calling themselves "Edukators" who break into luxurious mansions at night. Instead of stealing or vandalizing, though, the "Edukators" carefully rearrange furniture and leave obscure messages as a form of protesting against the system. However, when they "visit" an executive's mansion one night, a dramatic chain of events is set in motion that challenges not only political ideologies but also the characters' personal development.


This film will be shown with English subtitles.

Free and open to the public
