An encounter between young people from Mozambique and the working and production conditions in the GDR, an unusual drawing class with artist Hubert Globisch, or a gloomy ride on an express train - the Filmuniversität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf offers an insight into the holdings of its film archive with a selection of documentary films from the 1970s and 1980s. The digitization and restoration of the 16mm film material provides access to the reality of work and life from the perspective of young filmmakers from the GDR, with the participation of foreign students.
