Face the Wall
"Face the Wall" portrays five people traumatized by their experiences in Stasi - East German secret police – incarceration.
The five life stories told by former East German citizens incarcerated in the GDR are shocking to the core. The subjects speak with extraordinary openness of their struggles with the regime, of horrific prison conditions and interrogation methods. This sensitive documentary maintains a close proximity to its protagonists throughout, examining open wounds and bringing psychological damage to light that have made it impossible for them to live a normal fear-free lives ever since.
A remarkable cinematic contribution that shows five unique facets of a daily life consisting of torture, abominations and violations of human dignity without attempting to judge, provoke or explain. Rather, the film documents and makes an important chapter in German history more palpable in the best possible sense!
