Watch a gripping portrait of the legendary East German singer-songwriter Gerhard Gundermann (brilliantly played by Alexander Scheer). While successful as a composer and performer, Gundermann kept his job in a lignite mine, and his outspoken insistence on personal freedom and criticism of authorities made him run afoul of the communist regime. Yet there were some dark secrets in his life that emerged after the unification of Germany that he struggled to come to terms with.

This film will be shown at both 4 and 7:30 p.m., in German with English subtitles.
