Friday, 08.10.2010, 20.00 hrs

Poland, Germany 2009, 39.min. - German/Polish with English subtitles

In this documentary which was awarded numerous international prizes and nominated for the Oscar 2010 in the category of documentary short, two young Polish film makers, Bartek Konopka and Piotr Rosolowski, tell the wondrous story of the Berlin wild rabbits which, through decades, felt safe above all in the death zone along the inner German border. Only after the fall of the Wall, they had to learn to survive in a free world. A fascinating, humorous history lesson with many allegorical images of the Wall which have, so far, not been published. The film is a co-production of MS Films and ma.ja.de Filmproduktion.


H.E., Mr. Pawel Dobrowolski, Ambassador of Poland, and H.E., Mr. Gottfried Zeitz, Ambassador of Germany, will give a short welcome address.

A cocktail will follow.
