The Weissensee Saga. German Film Festival Melbourne 2011

An East Berlin love story, The Weissensee Saga concerns the Kupfers, communist party loyalists whose patriarch Hans, is a member of the notorious Stasi secret service; and the Hausmanns, a family of dissidents whose matriarch, Dunja, is under Stasi surveillance. When policeman Martin Kupfer and young trouble–maker Julia Hausmann fall in love, their politically forbidden relationship will rock the foundations of both families.
