A wall within
East Side Gallery
English subtitle, French, German
The Canadian director Catherine Veaux-Logeat on the trail of her German ancestors: Frank, a seafarer from Hamburg, was separated from his first great love by the construction of the Berlin Wall. A Stasi document suggests that his brother Bernd spied for the Stasi. Frank feels betrayed.
The film gives an intimate insight into a family history that once again shows that the walls in some people’s hearts do not fall quite so easily.
A documentary film by Catherine Veaux-Logeat. ENG/FRA, 2019.
