Uferfrauen

What was it like to be a lesbian woman in the GDR?
Uferfrauen follows six protagonists who lived in large and small towns in the north and south of the former socialist republic; they have a lot to tell. The women share with the audience their everyday lives at the time, their struggle for self-determination, their first love, unconventional family planning and conflicts with the SED and the law.

The GDR Complex

Today, more than 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the fight for the prerogative of the historical interpretation and political relevance of the former GDR seems more intense than ever.
