Der Augenzeuge
DDR 1973

Two DEFA newsreels record the first and the last day of the World Festival. The large-scale celebrations and, on the sidelines, an old
German woman presenting flowers to the delegates; Vietnamese female soldiers decorated with medals; a band from Congo with ultra-high
platform shoes. The sparse commentary leaves room for atmospheric pictures and original sounds. “El Pueblo Unido” drifts through the
Stadium of World Youth.
