Six Decades of Youth

(6 x 30 minute episodes)

This documentary series is a journey through German youth in the East and West over the last six decades. The narrator is actually an apartment, which has witnessed everything from the student protesters, the hippies, punks, slackers down to the digital natives. Each episode follows another generation as they move into the apartment. The viewer is privy to the experiences and impressions which shaped each decade.

A mix of contemporary archive material, re-enactments and exclusive private films and photographs helps us to recreate the events and impressions these generations were confronted with. We examine young generations who are always trying to reinvent themselves. People, who by trying to find their place in the world manage to change it - even if only a little bit.
