After the Fall (Nach dem Fall)
Director: Frauke Sandig, 86 min., 1999
Documentary film about the disappearance of the Berlin wall 10 years later. Contemporary witnesses include an American historian, a church minister in Berlin and a Bavarian demolition expert. The common tenor of all their statements is that the wall and its traces were eradicated too quickly and too radically with the intention of forgetting the past.

One Germany: The Other Side of the Wall
Director: Mark Hayes, 55 mins., 2010
How different are eastern and western Germany 20 years after the fall of the Berlin
Wall? Combining original footage shotover two decades with personal stories, Hayes
sets out to answer this question. The result is a sometimes touching, sometimes chilling
of the experiences of East Germans, "illuminating the complex and often difficult path to reunification in a way that is simultaneously funny and provocative, thoughtful and accessible, observant and insightful."
