Jahre der Kälte/Frozen Stories – NEW here on „Watch Films Now“

Finally we can now present from Nov. 9th the eighth film through this homepage for stream (in the section „Watch Films Now“): Jahre der Kälte (only German version!)

„This is/was an important film for me, cause it’s not only dealing with German post-war history, and all horror my father and his friends had to go through by founding a liberal-democratic party in the soviet-occupied territory, but it also tries to capture an imaginary dialog between me and my late father.“ U. Schueppel
(Soundtrack: Blixa Bargeld)
