The Genre Cinema of DEFA

The repertoire of DEFA, the major movie studio of the German Democratic Republic, includes numerous very unusual Genre Films. Those productions were met with skepticism by government officials and received rather luke-warm reviews from contemporary critics, but were often enormously successful at the box office.

To mark this year's DEFA anniversary, Zeughauskino and DEFA Foundation present a selection of seven particularly noteworthy GDR genre films as a free online retrospective.
