Broken Taboos

To mark the 75th anniversary of DEFA, the series presents five films by filmmakers from the GDR. They deal with social problems such as housing shortages, unemployment, criminality, and non-conformist youth and music culture. As special historical documents, the selected films provide a socially critical insight into life in the GDR.
