Summary
At the end of 1965, the East German government abruptly changed its cultural policies, resulting in a wave of censorship and the banning of all the feature films made at the DEFA Studio that year (e. g. , Born in '45, Carla, Trace of Stones). Referred to as the 'rabbit films' after the first one to be banned, The rabbit is me, these twelve films were not publically screened until the Wall came down in 1989. Though the most intense example of film censorship in the GDR's history, the mid-1960s represented just one of a series of freezes and thaws in the nations cultural politics. Films were censored and received limited release because of their depiction of certain characters (The axe of Wandsbek, The bicycle) or their avant-garde style (Farewell, The land beyond the rainbow), or for addressing taboo topics (Sun seekers, The flight, Jadup and Boel, The tango player) or presenting an unrealistic (and ostensibly unflattering) picture of political and social life in the GDR (The dove on the roof)
