2009. Germany. Directed by Marco Wilms. Who would have thought East Germany in the 1980s would be home to a vibrant underground fashion scene every bit as wild and uninhibited as New York’s in the 1960s. Former East German model Wilms gathered lively archival footage of the period—some shot clandestinely—and intersperses it with interviews of former East German colleagues who have adapted, each in his or her own particular manner, to being “free” in a reunified Germany. In German; English subtitles. 82 min.
