Reedited version of footage from the DEFA film studio in the GDR. The material is propaganda, presenting the charms of life in a socialist country. The soundtrack is not the film’s original and hence disturbs the idealised image of the well-balanced life of workers and intellectuals in a paradise, introducing the schizophrenic mood which was the quotidian experience of people subject to the concentrated impact of propaganda.
