Beyond the Wall
The fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 symbolized the end of the Cold War and spurred on the peaceful revolutions that caused Communism to crumble. Twenty years later, this extraordinary documentary examines the communist era and its legacy, illustrating the endurance of the human spirit in the face of political dogma. Featuring dissidents, artists, escape organizers and ordinary people in Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland, "Beyond the Wall" humanizes life under Communism and highlights the complex issues that still face the region.
