A Visionary of Realism – 100 Years. Karl Gass


CATALOGUE TEXT
Radio editor, voice-over speaker, co-founder of the precursor of DOK Leipzig, the Leipzig Documentary and Short Film Week. Karl Gass was many things, but above all he was the Nestor of documentary film in the GDR. In February this year he would have celebrated his 100th birthday – an occasion for a (re-)encounter with two films that mark the beginning and end of his life’s work.
