Thuringia in 1979 – an escape from the GDR over land is absolutely unthinkable!
The Strelzyk and Wetzel families develop a plan that is as adventurous as it is risky. They try to escape from the republic in a homemade hot-air balloon. When the first attempt ends with a crash and the Stasi finds out about them, a race against time begins.
With Michael "Bully" Herbig's remake of the spectacular escape, this year's DFG Film Evening on 26 September 2018 will be a real preview, as the film will not be released in the cinemas until a day later.
We are looking forward to greeting our guests and an exciting evening!
