Film Screening: 'When We Were the Future'
April 19, 2018
In this autobiographical compilation film, seven directors from the East German DEFA film studios remember their childhood in the 1950s and 1960s in East Germany.
In funny, poignant, and deeply moving stories, each director finds a unique form of storytelling. Using animation, archival material, stylized reenactments, and family photo collections, the filmmakers tell hauntingly intimate stories that at the same time reveal much about growing up in postwar Germany, life in the young, idealist, socialist state, and the perils of memory.
With director Andreas Voigt and producer Barbara Etz in person.
