Einmal in der Woche schrein
GDR 1982

All endeavours by the GDR to control the young generation’s musical culture, be these to ban it or offer home-grown alternatives could do little in the long-term to thwart youthful desire for a different, personal means of expression. With a soundtrack by the rock group Pankow, Einmal in der Woche schrein documents an underground (illegal) disco, in which kids – eager to copy American rebels of the silver screen – could indulge their personal longings. Whilst young people could not be controlled the film at least could be  - and was - banned. 

Günter Jordan, GDR 1982, 17 Min.
