“I certainly wouldn’t have done anything else in my life otherwise.” Without passing judgement, this film snakes through post-reunification Dessau, showing Bauhaus buildings sitting alongside empty factories, and gives a voice to people who have lost everything and those who have almost “exploded” because they finally got a chance. A laconic homage to Dessau and its history. Sara Gómez

 

Masterclass

As part of the homage, a masterclass with Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster will be held on Sunday 5 May. In conversation with the two filmmakers, Rebecca Zehr investigates their work. The masterclass will be held in German.
