Comrade Couture

Ein Traum in Erdbeerfolie (Germany)

Directed by:
Marco Wilms
TIFF edition:

Comrade Couture is a journey into the wild world of the fashionistas and Bohemians of East Berlin. It was a fantasy world within East Germany’s very restricted everyday life. Here you could break ranks, be individual and provocative. The most important identifying feature of the scene was the development of a personal style, a thing difficult to achieve in GDR times. This film tells of the passions and dreams which were tested, experienced and lived out in the shadow of the Wall.
