6:00 PM Discussion: Middle East Meltdown The modern Middle East is 100 years old, but the chaos and turmoil we are seeing now is unprecedented. The region has always been the scene of coups and revolutions. This is different—we are seeing complete state failure, in Libya, in Yemen, and most horrifically in Syria. What has led to this? Where will it go? Why is it important? What can we do about it? These are profound questions for America's national security and its place in the world.

8:00 PM German Film: Alki Alki Tobias (Heiko Pinkowski) and bottle (Peter Trabner) are friends for life. Since their youth, the two have not been separated from each other for a day. Tobias is in the prime of his life, and has a wife and children. He is responsible. And yet, he does not seem to grow up. With his buddy bottle he rocks the nightclubs and celebrates with people young enough who could regard him as their father. The two drink alcohol for nights and stay in bed during the day-long hangover. But the carefree lightness of youthfulness has long since vanished. Tobias is increasingly arguing with his wife Anika (Christina Grosse), his three children and his partner Thomas (Thorsten Merten), with whom he has founded an architectural office. Tobias loses his driving license, the love life with his wife and the joy of his children. Finally, he has a car accident that almost costs the lives of his children. Bit by bit, Tobias realizes that his friendship with the bottle is no longer good for him and that it is now time to separate and go his own way. But when Tobias comes to this realization, it is long too late. Tobias can not get rid of the bottle. So the murderous spiral continues...until it gets dirty.
