5th Annual GSA Film Series
German Studies Association conference
St. Paul MN
Our fifth German Film Series featured two films by director Konrad Wolf—Solo Sunny and Goya, or the Hard Path to Enlightenment—and two post-unification productions: the short film Looking for Solo Sunny and Konrad Wolf and the documentary Last to Know, which explores the experience of four former East German political prisoners.
In addition to the Thursday night screenings, there was a special screening on Saturday 4 October, of the landmark Weimar Republic classic Kuhle Wampe, or Who Owns the World? introduced by Marc Silberman (University of Wisconsin).
