Focus: 30 Years Fall of the Berlin Wall
Director: Andreas Dresen | Cast: Alexander Scheer, Anna Unterberger, Peter Schneider, Bjarne Mädel, Milan Peschel | Language: German, with English subtitles

With sensibility, affection, and humour, multi award-winning director Andreas Dresen presents this moving and endearing portrait of the beloved East German folk singer and songwriter Gerhard Gundermann. Politically active and passionate, digger driver Gundermann’s music career took off in 1986, capturing the hearts of the people with his clever, often melancholy lyrics imbued with social commentary. A poet, a clown, a loyal husband and an idealist, Gundermann lived a multifaceted life as a rebel - and a spy who was spied on.
 
Alexander Scheer is truly astonishing to watch as the intractable, brave and contradictory talent, not least because he sings every song himself. This inspiring biopic is both a music film and a love story that courageously encompasses guilt and entanglement, as well as suppression and, above all, defiance

One of the richest, most sophisticated and greatest films about the GDR.
