When Martin Was Fourteen (Als Martin vierzehn war)

Beck, Walter
Martin and his friend Kathrin find their childhoods end abruptly in March 1920, when their village is drawn into the events surrounding the reactionary Kapp Putsch. Martin accidently stumbles upon weapons that the landowner Broder has stockpiled for the reactionary forces and brings them to the workers in the city. When the villagers organize a strike against the putsch, soldiers try to suppress the residents. Kathrin and Martin manage to get to the city for help, but then Martin is arrested. This film was an official contribution to the 1966 Cannes International Youth Film Festival.
