  • Weissensee, Second Season (2012)

    Romeo and Juliet, along with the story of Cain and Abel, provide the background motifs for this dramatic family series, which depicts two very different families in East Berlin during the 1980s. The Kupfers hold an important place in the power structure of the East German system, with father Hans and eldest son Falk both senior officers in the Stasi – the Ministry of State Security - mother Marlene a loyal member of the Communist Party, and younger son Martin a policeman. In contrast, the Hausmanns tend to be critical of the regime: mother Dunja is a songwriter under permanent surveillance from the Stasi, and daughter Julia is regarded by the authorities as someone who might try to escape the country. So when Martin and Julia fall in love, their relationship shakes the foundations of both families. As the second series begins six years later, the social and political conflicts have intensified. Hans has spoken out in favour of reforms in the Stasi, coming up against resistance from both his son Falk and his wife Marlene. And when Falk's wife Vera starts taking an interest in the civil rights movement, this places even more pressure on Falk and the family. Julia has spent a long time in prison on a charge of treason, and she lost her baby when she gave birth behind bars. For many years she didn‘t see her beloved Martin, who has broken off all contact with his family. Julia's mother Dunja is collaborating with the Stasi in an effort to help Julia. But now some inconsistencies appear in the official account of the death of Julia and Martin's baby. They begin to ask questions – and the answers lead back to Martin's own family, triggering a catastrophe.

  • Fabian (1978)

    Erich Kästner (1899-1974) - writer and screenwriter, playwright and author of children's books, journalist and publicist, humorist and satirist - was an eyewitness in 1933 to the burning of his books by the Nazis. Although he was blacklisted and often without work or income, Kästner never emigrated but continued instead to write under different pseudonyms. 
    Many critics consider Wolf Gremm's FABIAN (1978), which was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Film category, as one of the best screen adaptations of an Erich Kästner novel. When published in 1931, the book attacked militarism, fascism, and the dubious code of the German “Spießbürger” (petit bourgeois) from a standpoint of moral outrage and with a broadside of barbed wit. Re-released on German television as a special event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Erich Kästner's birthday, Wolf Gremm's FABIAN appears as timely today as it did more than eight decades ago.

  • November Days (1990)

    His curiosity aroused by the joy so clearly visible in those television images from November 9th 1989, the day of German reunification, Marcel Ophüls resolved to return to the site of these historic events one year later and talk to the people featured in the pictures. He set off with his team, intent on combining his journalistic skills with the need of the filmmaker to attain deeper, underlying truths - in order to establish whether people’s lives really had been changed for better or for worse. While approaching the subject in a relatively light-hearted manner, Ophüls is consistent in his manner as he interviews East German people, ranging from the man in the street right up to Egon Krenz; he displays an unerring instinct for authenticity, refusing to let go until the truth has been revealed to him - and to us. NOVEMBER DAYS is like a time machine, moving to and from between the present and the past, mingling a kaleidoscope of entertainment images and news footage, shot from the streets, clubs and restaurants in Berlin and even including extracts from films such as THE BLUE ANGEL, STAGECOACH  and CABARET. Ultimately it is Ophül’s astute way of posing questions which distinguishes in ironic fashion between the answers and the lies.
