Beyond the Berlin Wall

This November marks 30 years since the falling of the Berlin Wall, which saw German unification and the subsequent creation of new European and global order. Focussing on life in the divided and re-unified city of Berlin, this specially curated mini season celebrates the opening of the Wall through films made by women directors in the immediate aftermath of the seismic events of 1989.

Presented in association with the German Screen Studies Network; the University of Manchester, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures; and supported by the Goethe-Institute.
