After Autumn’s well-received Netflix Viewing Party for Unorthodox, we’ve organized another! Join us again this Spring as we watch and discuss the comedic drama Das letzte Wort, a German Netflix miniseries from September 2020 starring Anke Engelke.
Das letzte Wort tells the story of Karla Fazius, a woman who tries to overcome the sudden death of her husband. Longing, fear, anger, speechlessness - Karla doesn't find her own voice until the day of the funeral. There and then she decides to become a eulogist. Together with the owner of a funeral home, she assists those dealing with loss and accompanies them on their individual paths to bid their final farewell. With her fresh personality, she is soon known as a fun alternative to the other typically somber eulogy speakers.
Students can receive extra credit for participating in the synchronous screenings and the discussions following each episode!
