Elser Vollflächig schmal
13 MINUTES

After the National Socialists seized power, Georg Elser, a carpenter from Königsbronn, decides to kill Hitler single handed. The bomb he assembled by himself missed the target by only 13 minutes. 13 minutes, that would have changed world history.

The film 13 MINUTES, honored and nominated multiple times, tells us about Georg Elser, an ordinary carpenter and unrecognized German resistance fighter. Who was this man who recognized the danger emanating from Hitler sooner than many others? Who took action, when everybody else including the German generals meekly followed orders or kept silent?
