Watch The Third Generation
- 1 hr 45 min
This 1979 German film, released first under its original title "Die dritte Generation," was highly controversial in its home nation for its portrayal of the inside dealings of a terrorist organization in an era where this was very relevant in Western European society. A wealthy businessman is secretly funding the new third wave of a terrorist organization as they build membership and evade detection. Using a secret code phrase that translates to "The world as will and idea," the organization bulks up its membership and turns violent when its interactions with businessmen and law enforcement become complicated. The film was little-known outside of Germany until it gained wide recognition in the early 2000s.
