Berlinale Devotes Film Series to Fall of Communism 

A special series of films at this year’s Berlinale film festival commemorates the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Under the motto, "After Winter Comes Spring," documentaries, animations and feature films made in eastern Europe in the years leading up to the fall of communism are to be screened at the Berlinale film festival.
According to the Museum for Film and Television in Berlin, at the time of their production, the films gave an honest view of life under totalitarian regimes, auguring the changes that lay ahead.
The documentary film "Christine," which gives its name to the series of screenings, by the director Helke Misselwitz, gives an insight into the lives of women in the German Democratic Republic.
In the film, a coal factory worker scrubs the dirt from her body every evening before returning home to her son and her disabled daughter. The single mother speaks into the camera, saying society ridicules her and considers her daughter a burden.
Films barely passed censors
