A Quiet Resistance

  • Germany
Audio Tracks 

Erika and Christine are a couple for more than 40 years. Today, at the age of 81, they look back on living through a turbulent time in history. A Quiet Resistance is a film about love and aging, autonomy, art and collectivity in freely created art spaces within the GDR. The film does not hang onto questions of the past, but rather looks with Erika and Christine into the future: What role can art play in politically demanding times? How can one stay true to themselves, their art and their ideals? What meaning can art create, for the whole and for each individual?
