Yell Once a Week

Original title: (Einmal in der Woche schrein)
Director:
GDR, 1982/1989, 14 min, color
In German; English subtitles

This short film follows East Berlin teenagers, from hanging out on the streets to a dance party. It was banned before its release, in part because the lyrics of the title song, played by the East German rock group Pankow, call for self-determination and freedom. The film was finally released in 1989.
