About the film:
Germany | 2020 | 115 minutes
From director Barbara Wallbraun

Six lesbians who created a private world for themselves despite state repression speak out about life in former East Germany. Through intimate romances and lives as mothers & workers, these rural and metropolitan women found a way to exist. The captivating and sometimes outrageous stories of their upbringing and everyday lives, intertwined with portrayals of the role of women in this communist state, illustrate their struggles to stay true to themselves within society’s (private) margins, always in the quest for personal happiness and strength despite the pressures of conformity.
