Vancouver Foreign Film Society presents: The Silent Revolution Image

The Silent Revolution

Das schweigende Klassenzimmer

Panorama | Presented by Vancouver Foreign Film Society

West Berlin, 1956. On a school trip across the Wall, East German high school students Theo and Kurt witness dramatic footage of the Budapest uprising in Hungary. Back in Stalinstadt, they spontaneously hold a two minute silence during class in solidarity with the victims of the Hungarian struggle against Soviet oppression. But the gesture causes much bigger ripples than expected. The People’s Education Minister condemns the action as a counterrevolutionary act and demands that the ringleader be named, forcing the students to choose between standing together or not.

Based on a true story.
