Sweep It Up
Kehraus © DEFA-Stiftung
Leipzig is in a period of change. The uproar of Fall 1989 is followed by the hectic electoral campaign in Spring 1990. Nightly conversations with street sweepers are dominated by hopelessness and broken self-confidence, but one can also recognize a keen sense for the change in social climate following the political unification in the GDR. Despite their lack of illusions, they have an acute view of their surroundings and for these street sweepers only one certainty prevails: there will always be dirt.
