An almost forgotten film from “eventful times”. At a secondary school in Bremen, the first anti-authoritarian outbursts and demands for democratization of the school are emerging. For Peter Zadek’s first feature film, the camera was operated by Dutchman Gérard Vandenberg (1932-1999), who played an important role in the Young German Film (ES) and was a teacher of Robby Müller – here his assistant.
