Jan 18 "Line of Separation" (aka "Tannbach") tells the story of the small German town of Tannbach as the Cold War's Iron Curtain descends upon Eastern Europe. A microcosm of the events following World War II, the series looks at how the Cold War affected communities, friends and even families. Meet the cast: Johanna Bittenbinder, Jonathan Berlin, Henriette Confurius, Heiner Lauterbach, Martina Gedeck, Alexander Held, Senta Auth, Florian Brückner, and finally, Maximilian Brückner, the actor behind Gustl Schober. While he had a bit part in "War Horse", he went on to have a larger role in "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days", and to portray Martin Luther in the TV mini-series "Reformation". Not to mention - you guessed it - a reoccurring role on "Tatort" as Franz Kappl. "Line of Separation" truly has it all: art direction, drama, and a cast filled with talented performers. Check it out now on WGBH Passport, or broadcasting on Boston's WGBX 44. Full article
