Running parallel to our retrospectives on Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Jürgen Böttcher  organised to mark the 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - this programme brings together a selection of disparate works that delve into Germany's recent sociopolitical past. Using the Wall as a starting point these films explore themes of exclusion, statelessness, memory, disappearance, political upheaval and terrorism from the collapse of Germany after WW2 to the aftermath of reunification in the 90s – culminating with Thomas Heise's monumental new work Heimat is a Space in Time.
