Directed by Petra Epperlein, Michael Tucker
FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE – Twenty-five years after the collapse of the German Democratic
Republic (GDR), a filmmaker returns to her proletarian hometown to uncover the truth about her
late father’s suicide and his rumored Stasi past. Was he an informant or target? Using the
Stasi’s extensive archives, she reconstructs everyday GDR life in a chilling film about
oppression and surveillance.
