Cast: Hertha Thiele, Ernst Busch

Conceived by Bertolt Brecht at the political and artistic watershed of the waning Weimar Republic, the film is still remarkably fresh and accessible, with its subversive humour, exquisite photography by Günther Krampf and Hanns Eisler’s dynamic musical score. ‘Kuhle Wampe’ was a camp for the dispossessed: the film’s heroine rejects the docility of the camp – filmed in semi-documentary style – in favour of class solidarity and revolution.
