        • Dismantling, not Demolishing: The Removal of Palast der Republik


          from Christos Varvantakis Added

          Ethnographic documentary made along the removal of Palast der Republik, the parliament building of German Democratic Republic in Berlin. The film juxtaposes the state rhetoric which advocated the buildings' removal, to the experiences and opinions of people who have actually used it. You can watch an extended feature documentary film on the subject here: https://vimeo.com/34519706 ("Symbols in Transition". 2006, by A. Pitsios and C. Varvantakis) And you can find an accompanying essay here: http://spmss.highwire.org/content/2/1/27.abstract ("A Monument to Dismantlement", 2009)

              • Former East/Former West - excerpt


                from Shelly Silver Added 144 1 0

                Former East/Former West in German & English, 62:00, 1994 Made up of hundreds of street interviews done in Berlin two years after the Reunification, Former East/Former West is a vital, surprisingly open, and at times disturbing documentary about what it means to be German at this particular moment in history. For forty-five years, residents of this divided city lived radically different lives, both in terms of ideology and everyday experience. Silver questions the very notion of a shared language, focusing on changing definitions of words for political and economic systems - democracy, freedom, capitalism, socialism - as well as words used to describe nations and identity - nationality, Germany, history, foreigners, home. Watching the interviewees grapple with their own personal definitions of these ideologically loaded terms, viewers can't help but ask these same questions to themselves. In this way, Silver's project takes on a much larger scope, raising key question facing most countries today - what makes up a nation or a national identity; where do boundaries begin and end, who belongs within these boundaries and who does not.. "Anyone who wants to better understand why it is so difficult to 'merge what belongs together' will want to see this film."

                  • What Revolution? part one


                    from Kelü Added 124 2 0

                    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.
