Voigt, Kroske and Richter were among the first filmmakers who documented the events of the historic 9th of October 1989. Their “material” reflects them from different angles: protesters, workers, opposition members, policemen, street sweepers and functionaries. THE document of the “peaceful revolution”.
A man is walking alone through the streets. He sees nothing but the asphalt under his feet. He passes houses filled with life, colours, humans, plants and animals. He fails to notice them, he finds his true self in the forest.

Kurt Masur conducts the Orchestra of the Gewandhaus Liepzig, accompanied by soloist Frank-Michael Erben (violin), in a Gala dedicated to the life's work of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847). This magnificent concert features the great masterpieces.
The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and their Music Director Riccardo Chailly have already acquired legendary status – glorious reviews and many awards for their recordings testifying to their continuing success. At Leipzig’s International Mahler Festival, to mark the centenary of Mahler’s death, they performed his monumental Second Symphony in the Gewandhaus – together with two marvellous soloists and choral forces quite beyond compare. About the final movement the composer said: “The increasing tension, working up to the final climax, is so tremendous that I don’t know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it.” The painting “Morgenrot” was chosen by internationally acclaimed artist Neo Rauch to feature on the cover of this release on DVD and Blu-ray.
Documentary short about the Leipzig Tradefair in 1946.
