COMRADES & CASH (2018), documentary 80 min

A film on the unbelievable ironies and counterintuitive measures taken during the Cold War. Threatened by bankruptcy the GDR lost its ideals and became a receptive student of capitalism in its most elaborate form. It is a story of tunnels underneath the Iron Curtain, of collaboration between East and West. In the end, the Cold War isn’t what it seemed to be.

The documentary for „Deutschland 86“.
