Ellen Ueberschär’s Movie Pick
As a theologian, and a prominent member of Germany’s Lutheran Protestant Church, it’s interesting that Ellen Ueberschär’s favourite movie of all time should be the 1988 drama Einer trage des anderen Last – Bear Ye One Another’s Burden. It’s the story of the confrontation between a committed Marxist and a Protestant pastor. I remember seeing the movie in what was then still East Berlin and feeling very strongly that the Berlin Wall would soon fall.

Claus Hipp’s Movie Pick
Claus Hipp has been a keen equestrian all his life. Perhaps he has always dreamt of riding a chariot. Certainly, his favourite film of all time features the most famous chariot race in movie history. It is, of course, the 1959 epic Ben-Hur.

Stefanie-Lahya Aukongo’s Movie Pick
Stefanie is one of those people who doesn’t have to think for a moment about her favourite movie of all time. And it is: the 2008 drama The Secret Life of Bees. Which, by the way, was produced by Will Smith and stars, among others, Queen Latifah and Alicia Keys. One to look out for.

Rolf-Dieter Heuer’s Movie Pick
You might expect a man who’s at the head of one of the most-publicised scientific experiments of all time to choose a science-fiction movie. But after a hard day’s work trying to discover the origins of mass, what Rolf-Dieter Heuer most enjoys when he gets home is having a bit of a laugh. Which is why his FMOAT is a comedy: the wonderful What’s Up Doc? by the sometimes brilliant Peter Bogdanovich. A film that I, too, adore.
