Theatre & Stage

Documentary film by Volker Koepp, Germany 2023

People, places and landscapes in north-eastern Germany, "where the wind falls gray and rough from the sea into the land", as the writer Uwe Johnson wrote. This film also tells the story of him, one of Germany's most important post-war authors.
Uwe Johnson was born in Cammin, in Pomerania, on the Baltic Sea in 1934 and died in Sheerness-on-Sea on the North Sea in England in 1984 at the age of just 49. His Mecklenburg and Pomeranian origins remained an important literary point of reference for him throughout his life. Even more so after he left the GDR in 1959 and lived in West Berlin, New York and England. Motifs of leaving and staying pervade his work, as does his examination of German history, the Second World War, German guilt and the "further consequences of the war", as he put it. Added to this are his experiences as a pupil, student and budding writer in the early GDR.
