Articles of former East Germany from household items to flags are thrown away at a garbage dump outside of East Berlin, serving as a reminder of a state that no longer exists. In this gesture of breaking ties with the past, the film captures the dumping ground as the last burial site of a society and the absurdity of time and existence.
Part of the series WENDE FLICKS: Last Films from East Germany. This short film is also available for purchase as a special feature on the DVD of Leipzig in the Fall.
