German 201 Final Project


This video by Dylan Ledbetter and Michael Davidson was created for the final project in German 201. Set in the GDR (ex-East Germany) circa 1980, this short film shows the strange mixture of programming that might have been on TV in the East and the West, as well as the risks that East Germans faced in simply seeking entertainment. With cameos by a variety of Rhodes students, this project provides a humorous take on the Cold War while still addressing its realities. Non-German speakers will enjoy this video too.
