“AG Geige - An Amateur Film” The music of Karl-Marx-Stadt
Rare costumes, an eclectic imaginary and a huge sound, make trilogy that roughly describes the revolutionary German rock band Karl-Marx-Stadt.
Founded in 1989, the band ended abruptly in 1993, but still its trail is palpable in the generation that saw it in its glory.
In order to unravel the secrets of the band, director Carsten Gebhardt interviews those who were then protagonists of this musical phenomenon.
