Face the wall (Gesicht zur Wand)

US West Coast Premiere
In Person: Director Stefan Weinert


Directed by Stefan Weinert: Five life stories are told by former East German citizens incarcerated for attempting to flee the Republic in the GDR. They represent a group of around 72,000. The subjects speak with extraordinary openness of their struggles with the regime, of horrific prison conditions and interrogation methods. This sensitive documentary maintains a close proximity to its protagonists throughout, examining open wounds and bringing psychological damage to light that have made it impossible for them to live a normal fear-free lives ever since. A remarkable cinematic contribution that shows five unique facets of a daily life consisting of torture, abominations and violations of human dignity without attempting to judge, provoke or explain. Rather, the film documents and makes an important chapter in German history more palpable in the best possible sense.
