The Land Beyond the Rainbow (Das Land hinter dem Regenbogen)

Kipping, Herwig
This harsh, yet poetic critique of Stalinism in East Germany centers on the mythical village of Stalina in 1953. The villagers legitimize injustice by glorifying real existing socialism ... at the same time as they experience their own destruction by the system. This DVD features the director's cut. Critics credit this film with being one of the most radical condemnations of East Germany, dominated by picturesque tableaux, canvasses awakened to filmic life, contemporary history bundled together in close-ups. In his directorial debut, Herwig Kipping sets out to explore the roots of the socialist society he grew up in. Part of the series WENDE FLICKS: Last Films from East Germany.
