The Celluloid Curtain
Europe's Cold War in Film

A series of European spy films from both sides of the Iron Curtain to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the building of the Berlin Wall. These remarkable, mainly 1960s films shed light on the popular spy genre and aimed both to be entertaining and to cement the divisions and ideologies of the Cold War. Complemented by a panel discussion chaired by Gordon Corera, BBC Security Correspondent, and an exhibition of European spy film posters.

Organised by the Goethe-Institut London in collaboration with EUNIC and Riverside Studios. With support from the European Commission Representation in the UK. In media partnership with Index on Censorship.
