Ein Traum in Erdbeerfolie

»Comrade Couture - Ein Traum in Erdbeerfolie« is a film journey into the wild nether world of the fashionistas and Bohemians of East Berlin. It was a fantasy world within East Germany’s very restricted everyday life. Here you could break ranks, be individual and provocative. The most important identifying feature of the scene was the development of a personal style, because you couldn’t buy such a thing in GDR times. In this nether world, you had to create your individual image. This film tells of the longing, passions and dreams which were tested, experienced and lived out in the shadow of the Wall.

»Comrade Couture« is a humorous documentary about creativity as the elixir of life – and the never-ending longing for individual freedom.
