GDR 1963. Dir: Slatan Dudow. 110 min. New reconstructed version. DCP
with Annette Woska, Günther Haack, Horst Schultze, Armin-Mueller-Stahl
Repeated pregnancies prevent a farm worker from continuing her professional education in the young GDR. In his socialist comedy, Dudow pleads for equality between men and women – and therefore he elevated his amoral heroine to the status of Madonna. Because of Dudov’s accidental death in 1963, the film remained unfinished.
We present the premiere of the DEFA Foundation’s new reconstruction.
Indroduction: Ralf Dittrich, Berlin
