Abstract

This manifesto emerged out of discussions between filmmakers in East Germany near the very end of the Cold War. Originally, it was to be read at the 5th Congress of Film and Television workers that year, but was not, for fear of reprisals and the loss of jobs. The manifesto therefore went unmentioned at the conference. The manifesto shows the internal contradictions and political confusion in the GDR at the time, with talk of both censorship and autocritique right before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
