GDR, 1962, 85 min, b&w
In German; English subtitles

Fast-paced montages represent West Berlin as the frontline of neo-fascism, terrorism and neo-colonialism, against which the peaceful city of East Berlin requires an “antifascist defense.” A strikingly modernist propaganda piece, it uses rare authentic images and newsreels from both sides to justify the erection of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961.
