Super 80 Ost: Punk, Performance & Politics behind the Iron Curtain
This long-overdue UK premiere of East German underground films seeks to present an alternative portrait of life on the other side of the Iron Curtain. The recent wave of so-called ‘Ostalgiefilme’ (a pun on ‘Ost’ and Nostalgie’), such as Good-By Lenin and the Oscar-winning The Life of the Others presents GDR as either an innocent social experiment or a Stasi-infested enclave cut-off from the Western experience of every-day life. In order to counter this form of romanticisation, Maxa Zoller invited Claus Löser, filmmaker, curator and author of the groundbreaking book 'Gegenbilder – DDR Film im Untergrund', who will present the work of some of the most important East German underground filmmakers.
