This Ain't California (2013)

Starring: Kai Hillebrand,Zaneta Fuchsova,Anneke Schwabe,David Nathan,Helmut Kohl

In 90 minutes, we see the GDR more sharply, more clearly: the skater subculture shows that not all was grey-on-grey and drab clouds of Trabant fumes. This Wildfremd production (Ronald Vietz & Michael Schobel) by director Martin Persiel takes original clips of the "wheel-board-riders" - straight out of the East German scene in the 80s - and mixes it with animations and reencounters with the protagonists today. It is not just a well thought out story on its own - this film also raises the aesthetic bar. "Skating as freedom" is one of the leitmotifs of this film. Skating "without pressure to be better than someone else," as one of the main characters puts it, became the goal in hindsight, or, said downright harshly, "the desire for freedom turned lifestyle". Unbelievable, if not for the simple fact that this Californian fun could find its expression in the GDR. (c) Official Site
