Event 28

Film: Yesterday Girl/Una mujer sin historia (Abschied von gestern)

EUNIC film series

Venue: La Cárcel Cinemateca

Anita G., a Jewess, comes "from the other side of the wall”. With the suitcase in her hand she meets strangers who help her discover an unknown country: the Federal Republic in the year 1966. Coming from the GDR, Anita embodies a past without assimilation and therefore does not have the skills necessary to integrate successfully into West German society. It is not her fault if everything is not always going well. All her stumbling difficulties are shown through some scenes of an almost documentary grittiness, which reflect the grotesque vision of the day to day with the greatest sensitivity.

Director: Alexander Kluge. 1966. Duration: 88 min.
