Just now we received the message that our 6-part TV series “Farewell Comrades!” was awarded with the renowned Adolf-Grimme-Award 2013 with the category ‘Information’. We congratulate and thank everybody who was involved.
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.
The award winner, director Andrei Nekrasov, the author György Dalos, the producer Georg Tschurschenthaler and executive producer Christian Beetz will receive the award at the ceremony in Marl on april the 12th.
Together with the award-winning webformat (FOCAL Award, PRIX EUROPA nominee), the whole series was now released in one DVD-Box by Icestorm.
