DIE LEGENDE VON PAUL UND PAULA/THE LEGEND OF PAUL AND PAULA is a 1973 East German film by director Heiner Carow is about an affair between Paul and Paula. The tragicomedy was based on the novel of the same name by Ulrich Plenzdorf. Because of the film’s political overtones, the film was almost not released, but it became extremely popular on release and drew as many as three million viewers (the GDR had at that time 17 million inhabitants). Today it is considered one of the best East German films.
Film shown in German with English subtitles. All are welcome to attend and admission is free.
