Abstract:

Thomas Brasch was a writer and translator, and also a filmmaker. In 1967/1968 he studied at the Academy of Film and Television in Babelsberg, but was expelled for distributing leaflets against the invasion of the Warsaw-Pact countries in Czechoslovakia and sentenced to prison. He left the GDR in 1976 with his sons. His sons later died, resulting him to emerge as a writer for the 1981 films Iron Angel, Domino, Mercedes (Brasch's 1985 eponymous piece adapted for the Dutch television) and The Passenger : Welcome to Germany, with Tony Curtis in the lead role. The 'Iron Angel' and 'The Passenger' were the only German competition entries invited to the film festival in Cannes.

Engel aus Eisen: A film is about gangsters in Berlin after WWII

Domino: "A record of the mental disintegration of a theatrical-star Lisa (Katharina Thalbach) ... Follows her life through a successful performance, a breakdown during another performance, the death of a director friend, constant intrusions into her apartment home, and domino games played against herself -- with her mother cast as her imaginary opponent cast. Lisa's world and the real world mix and mingle, tangled together as stability wanes."--Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Mercedes: In a universe in ruins, devastated by machinery, two young men revolt and get lost in space and time.

Der Passagier: A renowned U.S. film director sets out for Germany to shoot a documentary four decades after the war, but it's hard for him to stay focused: he's haunted by his memories as a Jewish Hungarian prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. The more he confronts his past, the heavier the toll of his trauma.
