GUNDERMANN
2019, Pandora Filmproduktion, 128 min, Germany, Dir: Andreas Dresen

With six wins at the prestigious German Film Awards, including Outstanding Feature, Best Direction and Best Performance by a lead actor, GUNDERMANN is a thoughtful biopic about the celebrated East German folk singer-songwriter. A man of wildly conflicting interests in music, blue-collar work and the politics of the GDR, Gerhard Gundermann (Alexander Scheer) mirrors an equally tumultuous East German regime in the 1970s. With a documentary-like style, director Andreas Dresen examines his main character impartially, giving equal attention to moments of beautiful musical inspiration and reprehensible acts of betrayal.
