The world changed when the wall came down. In "Marxism Today", a number of Marxism-Leninism teachers and a sportswoman from the DDR who saw their professional lives change radically or even end after 'Die Wende' take a disconcerted look back. Virtuoso interpolation of exceptional archival material.


Phil Collins, born in 1970 in the United Kingdom, works as a director, photographer, interviewer and producer and currently lives in Berlin. In 2006 he was nominated for the Turner Prize.
