Notes & Reviews:

In 1945, after the end of World War II, the world split into East and West. The frontier between the two cut a swath through Germany and demarcated not only a political boundary but a cultural one. The establishment of the eastern GDR was marked by a growth of culture extolling the ideology of the state. Through case studies of those who lived under the system, this documentary explores the fates of the privileged culturati and the rest, delivering sharp insight onto the influence of the political system on artistic life.
