11:45 pm
a defining decade which changed so much after the fall of the wall after the initial jubilation of reunification and the freedom that came with it for 30000000 east germans how did the aussies and vest sees themselves reunite we've dug deep in the extensive d.w. archive to find out more. german reunification altered the lives of millions of east germans for ever freedom to travel western culture western goods they suddenly had access to it all because of that great and for the joy or the happiness of everyone there was a huge amount of energy that was released. in a public link was 9 years old when the berlin wall fell and lived in the east outside of berlin along with the joy she felt she also had a lot of questions. you know i was pretty confused when it all happened
11:46 pm
not because i didn't want it or i didn't even really understand it at 1st but because i saw confused people all around me everyone had to get used to the new situation including the children and suddenly everything familiar was gone including a political system that was restrictive but also provided for almost everything disillusionment soon set in the east german economy collapsed unemployment rose and entire regions became desolate young people in particular grew frustrated. because we really only able to shop for. us might have is because it was really hard for my generation to find its way what direction to go out we had to learn everything about how things work in the west end of you. there were a lot of expectations and we couldn't fulfill them right away not because we didn't want to but because we were scared this guy. who got him on his voyage as an
11:47 pm
investment. but the end of east germany also made a lot of things possible in apollo the klink dreamed of becoming a singer she found a producer and in 1995 recorded her 1st song. to finish its. own . patch in 1907 she launched her television career as a reporter at the edge of l.a. for the show polish by a date she brought together young people with opposing viewpoints i mean. this my my you it's funny but is that legal immigrants like take the federal money the feeling is because we have. enough 1st moved to berlin then to hamburg many of her east german contemporaries also left their hometowns and moved to mostly western germany not an easy step as 2 examples from our archives demonstrate. a car
11:48 pm
mechanic from saxony on hard found work near stock each friday he drove back to his old home in his brand new mercedes. in the g.d.r. we need to go dancing we also did the same table and we all understood each other cities and it's harder to make friends here and i'm lonely at times. for the marketing expert from southern germany moved to dresden for a management position and was surprised by her east german colleagues. to boncelles they were used to things like flexibility productivity and motivation to promptness . but gradually these close encounters of an east west kind help to overcome prejudices and resulted in friendships. and romantic relationships. i can't imagine that a millionaire could be happier than we are. in a klink was also able to take advantage of opportunities provided by german
11:49 pm
reunification some 3 decades later she presents her album sound in a brewery turned cultural center and a chic neighborhood. this used to be east germany now it's hard to imagine it was once all in disrepair this is simply part of the history that has shaped this country and we have to keep talking about it and we should keep celebrating it as part of our history because this country was divided and now that that's over i'm happy to meet lovely people no matter where they're from. the. former east former west for even a polyclinic that's irrelevant her life has been improved by reunification and for her the east west divide is firmly in the past but i can see. that as a. bad bad. is with me now.
11:50 pm
all is happy isn't she but the majority of east germans well the german government's most recent reports on the progress of reunification indicate that 57 percent of. still feel they are 2nd class citizens much of this has to do with the resentment due to a continuing wage divide despite beast in germany having made major economic progress on the other hand over happiness is the pew research center's survey shows that the proportion of eastern germans with the chop happiness writing increased from 15 percent in 1991 to 59 percent in the most recent survey ok and now on the cultural from some former east germans have done very well internationally yes. first and foremost ramstein of course whose members all grew up in communist east germany patchi know that 3 members were in
11:51 pm
a band in east berlin and in the eighty's they reformed regrouped in the ninety's as ramstein and went on to conquer the world with provocative songs and incendiary live metal circus act the success even more extraordinary because they broke into the u.s. charts with songs in german yeah and what about in the art world i'm thinking of me orion the lights named after life yeah that i exist but was a richard and they refer to artists from the formation german town in the times of communism but shortly thereafter after 1909 the new leipsic school took off this was people who studied in leipsic under the old east german masters and worked in styles that depended on the social realism of communism they shot to fame in particular as you said neo route since paintings
11:52 pm
have sold for in excess of $1000000.00 and finally the the movies as well i'm thinking of bob stewart just outside that's right bubble's book has become a popular destination for global film productions over the last 20 years. steven spielberg's film breach of spine is oscar winning production starring tom hanks is just one of numerous hollywood films made in germany with the studio as pro producer and the most ambitious german television series of all time but then made extensive use of studio metropolitan back not even canada as always thank you very much for those insights have a group where you can you. we turn to a new film about the legendary german film director ryan of an
11:53 pm
a fast spend whose life was actually as exciting as his films he was incredibly prolific making have a 40 films to t.v. series and $26.00 there's a place in under 2 decades the candle at both ends famously using the quote i'll sleep when i'm dead which i fortunately happen to him from a lethal dose of drugs and 982 and he was just 37 years old. this new film aptly titled all fall to everybody comes around europe. that's this time not because they think and so forth and they say it by the way in the construction of a goal by what i believe that the. person . does it cost at least $5.00 times so i do feel as i got tashi that
11:54 pm
they tested too expensive t.t.'s to. this is the 1st shot. down so much that maybe even in the theatre no one could expect gentle treatment from. spending he was always ruthlessly provocative with the aim of stirring things up but it. didn't go out of order was. was propped up by our feet for i think so. is a fitting title for a film about the subversive often unpalatable fast and it shows the director as a nasty on set dictator was i'll take that to be the coward because my god this is us going where not the bio pics director perhaps. exaggerating a bit not at all fuelled by alcohol drugs and a robust ego fassbender himself often seemed like
11:55 pm
a monstrous stage character which is why his films his protagonist against theatre sets fassbinder remain singular it's no imitators or is that excess or. what remains is this great language faculty he had this great dramatic faculties at his film sound different from the people speak differently and you have no. other promise suchi embodies fassbender almost as if he were his twin brother a twin he's a bit afraid of. what i wanted to keep him away not let him in at all but also also recalls fassbender as manic creativity a cinema obsessed director made more than 40 films in just 12 years a slave i believe is the shelf stuff on the you didn't mention the complete suspenders personal dreams also collapsed he longed for love and intimacy yet found him intolerable he gathered his clan of collaborators around him like a surrogate family he needed them he loved them and yet he's humiliated and is
11:56 pm
going to go there's a. script that is a beginning. of a lot of this. with you know the film is a fearless depiction of a driven man deformed by his own tremendous energy and he was eventually devoured by it dying at the age of 37. captures the fascination fassbinder still exerts. a steady as she lead with. alice. finally the big music news this week was confirmation australian ac d.c. getting back together with over 200. in album song to date it's a real ac d.c. reunion with the return of singer brian johnson the bass is chris williams and the
