FREIES LAND

1946 /
The film tells the story of refugees who start anew as resettlers. The construction of destroyed villages, the division of the land and the beginning of mutual peasant aid - in complex, experimental montages, the changes in the countryside are portrayed up close and gripping. In semi-documentary form, shot with the participation of lay people, the film, despite its clear political intention, is not merely propaganda, but a reflection of the hopes and dreams immediately after the Second World War. A largely unknown, highly interesting document about the land reform in Westprignitz in the second DEFA film.
