Schlossträume – never ending dreams

An old manor house in the restricted area at the Baltic Sea - others called it a castle from 1945 - is in a "subsidised" Sleeping Beauty like state. What was life like at that place during GDR times, in the time before that and what happened when the inner-German border had disappeared? The former film project "Schlosskämpfer", supported by the DEFA Foundation in 2009, is currently being developed further.

Einsteins letzte Geige – fake or not
Harry Langner claims to own the violin on which Albert Einstein last played in Germany. The search for the truth about Einstein's violin playing reveals completely different sides of the genius with whom Harry also identifies. Is there any evidence that can proof what is or is not true?

Don’t kiss me, I’m busy
A portrait of the author's mother Waldtraut Scheibert and her active engagement with life. The stages of her life can be seen as example for an entire generation, and the many expectations and different roles the "bourgeois woman" was expected to fulfil. Female personalities and talented women like Waldtraut and her friends achieved wider social recognition as they dared to differ from the "norm". A film from today’s perspective, when women in the public eye are again facing hidden hostilities and challenges.

No time today
A lively old lady and grandmother is trying to sort out her life memories, all of which are kept in a massive chest in her sitting room. Fragments of memories of nights of bombings, marriage proposals, her work at the Foreign Office, and her journeys abroad, come flooding back. A short film (6 min) about the mess of memories, and about finding the time to put things in order.

Highly Recommended by the German film assessment board:
