Freistatt

Deutschland 2015
Regie: Marc Brummund
mit: Louis Hofmann Alexander Held Stephan Grossmann Katharina Lorenz Max Riemelt Uwe Bohm
104 Min.

Ein fesselnder und ergreifender Film nach wahren Begebenheiten – und das steht hier für: kaum zu glauben, was für "Erziehungsmethoden" es in den 60er Jahren zum Teil noch gab. In einem norddeutschen Erziehungsheim herrschen im Jahr 1968 ungeheuerliche Zustände: Jungs im Alter zwischen 10 und Anfang 20 werden kaserniert, als billige Arbeitskräfte ausgebeutet und brutal misshandelt. Einer von ihnen ist der 14-jährige Wolfgang, den sein Stiefvater ins Heim abgeschoben hat. Marc Brummund erzählt die dramatische Geschichte von Wolfgang und seinen Leidensgenossen in extrem ausdrucksstarken Bildern. Ein echtes Kinoereignis, bereits mehrfach ausgezeichnet!

Für diesen Film sind zur Zeit keine Vorführungen geplant.

BEGINNING OF QUOTE. = ANFANG DES ZITATS.

“A movie based on true stories, about the merciless fight of a boy to save the last bit of humanity and dignity in an oppressive system of society.”

Synopsis

May 1968: Rolling Stones, bell-bottoms, mini-skirts, sexual revolution, protests against the Vietnam War… While Germany sets off for a new era of freedom, rebellious fourteen-year-old Wolfgang gets sent to Freistatt, a foster home for difficult children [ i.e., a supposed “child welfare institution” run like a slave labour camp by an arm of the fundamentalist Evangelical-Lutheran Church: “Bethel”/“House of God” situated in a peat bog in the County of Diepholz in Lower Saxony. – added by MM ]. There he shall be “educated” to become a decent boy. Wolfgang puts up a determined resistance against the brutal working conditions and the perfidious education methods of the wardens; he doesn’t allow them to get him down. But for how long can he manage to resist the system of violence and oppression without brutalising himself?

Short English language summary of the German CINEMA-FILM "FREISTATT" by film director Marc Brummund.

Full length MOVIE, set in the year 1968, about a still existing WEST-GERMAN EVANGELICAL-LUTHERAN INSTITUTION FOR TEENAGE BOYS – „FREISTATT“ – in Lower Saxony ( County of Diepholz ) – part of the "von Bodelschwinghschen Antalten, BETHEL" ( = "HOUSE OF GOD" ) ( founded in and existing since 1899 !! ) – situated in a peat bog, run and ruled throughout "with an iron fist" by ʻbrethren of the evangelical-lutheran faithʼ as a lucrative peat-harvesting-and-manufacturing-enterprise. A LITERAL CHILD WELFARE HELL-HOLE OF THE WORST KIND !!
This full length MOVIE "FREISTATT", named after the INSTITUTION „FREISTATT“, which literally translated means, of all things, "REFUGE" or "SANCTUARY", depicts the indescribable suffering of the boys undergoing this slave labour in this Christian institution more than two decades after the Fall of the Third Reich.

I myself, born in July 1946, was interned in this institution and subjected to this slave labour and abuse in this very peat bog in 1963.

The BETHEL-OWNED peat manufacturing plant in „FREISTATT“ did not cease production until 1995.

Ich habe diese Zusammenfassung im vorletzten Beitrag hier in diesem Thread in englischer Sprache absichtlich an vielen Stellen ins Internet gestellt, damit auch das englisch sprechende Publikum weiß und erfährt um was es hier geht und was damals für lange Zeit, was Kinder und Jugendliche in totalen Institutionen betrifft, im Nachkriegsdeutschland vor sich ging. – Es wird natürlich immer wieder Leute geben, die hier und da, versuchen werden dieser Öffentlichkeitarbeit auf eine oder andere Weise entgegenzuwirken.

I deliberately placed this English language summary in many places all over the Internet so that the English speaking public too will become aware of what went on in postwar Germany as far as the treatment (mistreatment!) of children and youth in its institutions is concerned. – Of course, there will always be people who will try to obstruct this publicity and who in one way or another work against it.
