(GDR, 1988, dir. Dieter Schumann, 120 min., color, doc., EN ST)
Presenting the GDR rock music scene of the late 1980s. From well-established bands like Silly, to underground rock bands like Feeling B, this road movie includes clips from concerts and interviews with musicians and fans. It played in sold-out theaters to over a million viewers, who were not only drawn to see their favorite bands, but also surprised that this film made it past the censors.
