‘GERMAN UNITY @ BALATON’ is a poetic media installation of eight narratives and the Communist German Secret Police by the Lake Balaton 1961-1989. A new aspect of the divided German's drama and contemplative media impression of an extraordinarily period from the history of Europe. Compiled from amateur films, professional films, Stasi-films, and quotes from interviews and letters, the film paints a picture of the German-German meetings in the 1960s, 70s and 80s at Lake Balaton from a personal point of view.
