The Bonhoeffer project

Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace (2000), directed by Eric Till

A number of attempts have been made over the years to produce a feature-film dramatization of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It's a form­idable task to bring to the screen the story of a brilliant theologian who was also a connoisseur of fine wines, a talented pianist, an outstanding athlete, and a man of deep piety, who joined the conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler and died for his beliefs. With support from the Aid Association for Lutherans, Christian Stehr has produced Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace, which airs June 14 on PBS.
