The Silent Revolution is based on the personal experiences and the eponymous book by Dietrich Garstka. One of the 19 students who got in conflict with a complete state apparatus after a seemingly simple gesture. Join our host Katie for network drinks from 8 PM!

It is 1956 and during a visit to a cinema in West Berlin, East German students Theo and Kurt see shocking images of the Hungarian uprising in Budapest. Back in Stalinstadt they want to make a gesture out of solidarity with the fallen victims. During a lesson they therefore all keep a minute of silence. First this is seen as an innocent action. Until this news reaches the Ministry of Education. From then on it is considered as a counter-revolutionary act with far-reaching consequences for the pupils.

The award-winning director and scriptwriter Lars Kraume (winner of the German Film Award in 2016 for the political thriller The People vs. Fritz Bauer) collected an impressive cast consisting of a number of promising emerging and renowned actors. The film received its worldwide premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in the Gala program.
