We are especially pleased to receive the renowned Grimme-Award 2013 for our 6-part TV series “Farewell Comrades!” within the category ‘Information & Culture’. We congratulate the award winners – the director Andrei Nekrasov, the author György Dalos, the producer Georg Tschurschenthaler and executive producer Christian Beetz – and thank everybody who was involved. The Grimme-Award is the most important TV-Award in Germany.
Over six episodes, the series follows the 16-year countdown leading to the final collapse of the Soviet world and Socialist utopia – told from the perspective of those people who experienced, caused or tried to prevent it.
Together with the award-winning webformat (FOCAL Award, PRIX EUROPA nominee), the whole series was now released in one DVD-Box by Icestorm.
