„Go over there!“ – This was the saying heard again and again in 1968. Anyone who criticized the Federal Republic during the hot phase of the student revolts could leave. Over to the GDR. But who would have seriously thought of taking this crazy step?

Transit bei

In the documentary film „Transit,“ director Angela Zumpe goes in search of her brother, who left his conservative parental home in West Germany in 1968 at the age of 21 to move to the GDR. Only eight months later he killed himself, without the details of the circumstances being clarified. 40 years after the suicide, the director goes in search of clues and on her journey discovers biographies and stories of people who, like her brother, moved from West to East; among them people who had not yet given up the longing for a „third way,“ a socialism with a human face.

I liked this fictionalized account of my parents and Lucia very
much. Even though events did not unfold in quite that way,
the film presents the atmosphere of those troubled times
very well. I liked the sympathetic portrait of Lucia, and the
inclusion of Theodor Neubauer and Franz Spencer. (And of
course everyone looks very handsome.) Ich kann deutsch

English_TTC_Things to Come_Synopsis

A moving picture about László, Lucia and Sibyl Moholy-Nagy

While Feininger was painting, his neighbour in Weimar was experimenting with the young medium of film: László Moholy-Nagy was practising New Vision. All that he was lacking was an audience, because his ideas did not suit the taste of the masses. In their film installation THINGS TO COME, the two creatives Angela Zumpe and Oliver Held present their interpretation of what life in the Moholy-Nagy household might have been like.
There will be the projection of the light-image-sound production beginning of June 2020 at the renewed Georgium in Dessau, where you can delve into this network of moving images, sound and colour again.
