    Made in West | East Germany: World War II

    Presented by at Goethe-Institut Boston

    Made in West | East Germany: World War II

    Script writers and directors from West and East Germany, although divided after World War II, were inspired by similar subjects: the war and the division of their country and its former capital, Berlin. Germany's continuing separation in the 1950s before the Wall and in the Sixites after the Wall inspired many films. How these topics are reflected on film, however, varies greatly. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of German unification, the Goethe-Institut contrasts West and East German productions and their handling of these subjects. Similarities, traditions and connections between the two film cultures, existing in distinctly different social systems during the Cold War but based on the same origins, will be highlighted.
