The films in our DOK.deutsch competition series once again cover a broad spectrum of social themes and discourses. Also a commentary on the interaction between public and private life.
WENN WIR ERST TANZEN
The town of Hoyerswerda is emblematic of the demise of the GDR. Everything that this town represented was swallowed up by the fall of communism. The people were left without any market worth. A citizens’ dance project helps them to live with the shame. A sensually choreographed, empathetic film.
