The Iron Age

Thomas Heise, Germany 1991, 87 Min. Min., OV
Followed by a talk with

In 1981, Thomas Heise portrayed a group of four young people in Eisenhüttenstadt, but was unable to complete the film for political reasons. Ten years after the film “Anka and…” was discontinued, two of the protagonists took their own lives. The film follows encounters with  their former friends in everyday yet visually powerful settings in Eisenhüttenstadt and Berlin, looking at the dreams and conflicts of the deceased as well as those who continued to live. A film as sober as it is harrowing about the search for meaning, violent experiences and lost futures.

Followed by a conversation with the hosts of the RESONANZ Assembly Anna Zett and Hermann Heisig
