Director: Andreas Dresen, colour, 127 min., 2018
2019 German Film Awards (Outstanding Feature Film, Best Direction, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, Best Screenplay, Best Production Design, Best Costume Design)
Gerhard Gundermann (1955-1998) was a heavy equipment operator at a lignite strip mine and a Stasi informer, but above all he was a gifted singer-songwriter with a fanbase in both the former GDR as well as the subsequent, reunified Germany. In his feature film GUNDERMANN, director Andreas Dresen takes a sensitive look at this contradictory personality. The result is a perceptive biographical narrative that unreels like a modern musical Heimatfilm ["homeland" film] for East (and all of) Germany.
