A film by Ralf Kukula & Matthias Bruhn

East Germany, 1989.
Twelve-year-old Fritzi lovingly takes care of her best friend Sophie’s little dog Sputnik, while Sophie’s family is on summer vacation in Hungary. When Sophie doesn’t come back, Fritzi and Sputnik set out in search of her. That adventures leads her into the Monday´s demonstrations of Leipzig and towards the heavily-guarded boarder…

Historically accurate, authentic, and with lots of rich period detail and atmosphere, this moving animated movie for the whole family retells the story of the peaceful revolution of 1989 from a child’s perspective. An entertaining and exciting tale of the Fall of the Wall, and of the people who were brave enough to change the world, which will make a lasting impression, not only on young viewers.

Animation. Family. 86 minutes.

Based upon the book “Fritzi war dabei” by Hanna Schott and Gerda Raidt.
