As a result of making this documentary about petty criminals in East Berlin, Thomas Heise was expelled from the University for Film and Television in Potsdam. The film’s title cites the objection raised by one of Heise’s lecturers when he proposed making the film. It served as a direct provocation to the university authorities.  We are delighted that director Thomas Heise will introduce this screening. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
