Goethe-Zentrum, Hyderabad, is screening the film 'Berlin Is In Germany' at 2:00pm on 18th October.
'Berlin Is In Germany' centres around Martin Schulz, who is released after 11 years of imprisonment in the Brandenburg penitentiary. As a former citizen of the German Democratic Republic, he experienced the fall of the Berlin wall from inside prison.
Upon release, he receives his possesions from the time of his arrest - a blue East German identification card, an East German driver's license, and a wallet full of East German money. Martin is full of hope when he returns home, but hardly recognizes East Berlin. The 'New Berlin' has already taken over and the 'Old East Berlin' clings desperately to its last remaining traits. The eleven-year absence is like a time machine, and Martin runs into one difficulty after another while finding his place in this 'new' world.
'Berlin Is In Germany' was directed by Hannes Stoehr, who was born in 1970 in Stuttgart. After studying European Law in Passau, Hannes studied script-writing and directing at the German Film & Television Academy in Berlin. Active in all areas of film-making, some of his other films include Biete Argentinien, Suche Europa (1995), Maultaschen (1996), Lieber Cuba libre (documentary, 1997), Gosh, Zirkusportraet (documentary, 1998), One Day in Europe (2004) and Berlin Calling (2008).
