This is the first half of "What Revolution?" The complete video is a 60-minute documentary film about the reunification of East and West Germany. During the forty years Germany was divided, two very different societies evolved. A socialist dictatorship was established in East Germany, while West Germany developed a democratic capitalist state. This film explores the economic background of reunification and the problems that arose when trying to form a united Germany in 1990 and the rise of East German nostalgia as a response to rapid privatization.
