Film screening: Addicted to Acting
The Ernst Busch Academy is one of Germany's best respected acting schools. Every year, hundreds of would-be thespians apply in hopes that they'll be chosen for their rigorous program of study.
Filmmaker Andres Veiel chose four students at random as they were accepted at the Busch Academy. In the documentary Die Spielwuetigen (Addicted To Acting), he allows viewers to eavesdrop on them as they spend four years learning their craft and growing from callow youngsters into adults in search of their big break.
