The Fall of the Wall Film Series , Mumbai

28. November – 05. December 2009, 6.30pm
MMB, Goethe Hall
German with englisch subtitles
Entry free

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall the
Goethe-Institut is presenting a series of films, narrative and
documentary features, as well as shorts that portray not only the
historical events but also the conditions before and after November 9,
Saturday, November 28

Regie: Leander Haußmann, Farbe, 94 Min., 1998/99

The film “Sonnenallee” ventures a look back to GDR times – it is not a
maudlin portrayal, but an unabashedly sentimental and fabulously
exaggerated one. It is the story of young people, forbidden music and
dances, and of that special love that changes everything.

Monday, Nov 30
Regie: Andres Veiel, Farbe, 100 Min., 2000

An investigation into two contrary, but equally radical lives, both of
which ended through violence: Alfred Herrhausen, chairman of the board
of Deutsche Bank, died in 1989 in a bomb attack presumably planned and
executed by the RAF. Four years later, the suspected RAF terrorist
Wolfgang Grams was to be arrested at Bad Kleinen station, but died in a
hail of bullets. The circumstances surrounding his death were never
fully revealed.

Tuesday, Dec. 1

My Wall (Short films)
Berlin Today Award, Short Film Competition 2009 Regie: 5 Regisseure,
Farbe, 59 Min., 2009

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in
2009, My Wall was chosen as the creative focus for the sixth edition of
the Berlin Today Award – the short film competition of the Berlinale
Talent Campus.

Wednesday, Dec. 2 & Thu, Dec.3

Deutschlandspiel (Enacted Scenes + Documentary Footage)
1. Teil: Auf die Straße, 2. Teil: Eilig Vaterland!
Regie: Christoph Blumenberg, Farbe, 2 x 90 Min., 2000

In the space of just under a year, from 7 October 1989 to 3 October
1990, the Wall came down in Berlin, the GDR shuffled off the world
stage and the two German states were unified. DEUTSCHLANDSPIEL
reconstructs the story behind the story and shows the conflicts,
discussions and intrigues which were carefully concealed from the
public eye at the time.

Friday, Dec. 4

Director: Frank Beyer, colour, 133 min., 1995

Leipzig 1987: The individual gestures of revolt against the state are
becoming more and more apparent. The Monday prayers in the St. Nicholas
Church are attended by an increasing number of people. The state reacts
by trying to intimidate the people, expulsion from the party and other
repressive measures. On 9 October 1989 the Leipzig citizens achieve a
decisive victory. The head of Leipzig state security declares : “We
have reckoned with many things, but not with candles and prayers !”

Saturday, Dec. 5

Nach dem Fall
Director: Frauke Sandig, colour, 86 min., 1999

Documentary film about the disappearance of the Berlin wall.
Contemporary witnesses include an American historian, a church minister
in Berlin and a Bavarian demolition expert. The common tenor of all
their statements is that the wall and its traces were eradicated too
quickly and too radically with the intention of forgetting the past.
One of the absurd consequences: British homeopathists use pulverized
concrete from the wall to produce a therapeutic agent.
