Open Air Cinema

Open-air films at the "Stasi Headquarters. Campus for Democracy"

The former headquarters of the Ministry for State Security (or "Stasi") once housed thousands of employees of the East German secret police tasked with helping to secure the power of the Communist dictatorship. Today it is a place where these injustices of the past are addressed and connected to discussions about contemporary conflicts and values of society.

From August 7 until September 4 2021, the inner courtyard of the former Stasi headquarters in Berlin-Lichtenberg will be transformed into a large open-air cinema. All films are in German:
