Co-Presented by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Goethe-Institut Hongkong, moving image programme Winds of Change – From Cold War to the Peaceful Revolution 1989: Germany’s Long Road to Unity Through Cinema takes place from 9 to 12 January 2020 at the Louis Koo Cinema, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
When the Berlin Wall fell in November 1989, people were singing and celebrating the newfound freedom for East Germany. The Cold War was ended, the socialist one-party regime of the GDR had to step down and the way was cleared for Germany’s reunification. The moving image programme Winds of Change depicts Germany’s long and winding road from the early years of the GDR to the peaceful revolution with six important films, exemplifying the courage, perseverance and faith that dramatically but also realistically led to the Germany today. These films, most of them by East German directors, have been appreciated for their genuine emotions and excellent crafts by German and global audiences alike.
