The Rise And Fall of the Wall – The Cinema of East Germany

After Winter Comes Spring

Winter Adé

Helke Misselwitz

Shortly before the collapse of the GDR, Helke Misselwitz travelled by train from one end of the country to the other interviewing East German women of different ages and backgrounds. They reveal their personal and professional frustrations, hopes and aspirations—and, in doing so, paint a portrait of a changing society. The landscape and architecture of East Germany, filmed in B&W on 35mm by Thomas Plenert, form the background to the stories.
