The movie “MUDBOUND” follows the story of two men – one white, one black – returning home from WWII to life in the Mississippi Delta. As their families struggle to share the land, they discover that what they hold in common is more true than what tears them apart.
The story is based on the much appraised book «Mudbound» by Hillary Jordan.
In 2017, it was adapted into a critically acclaimed film that was acquired by Netflix after its debut at the Sundance Film Festival.
The movie has earned numerous accolades and honors, including four Academy Award nominations. Directed by Dee Rees, with a script co-written by her and Virgil Williams, it stars Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell, Jonathan Banks, and Rob Morgan. The Washington Post declared it “the best picture of the year.”
After the screening will be a conversation with PROF. DR. HEIKE PAUL (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg) and HILLARY JORDAN, author of the book, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
