Heimat 2: Chronicle Of A Generation

Product Description

The original Heimat followed the rural life of Maria Simon and her family through the changing landscape of 20th Century Germany, an epic journey from the end fo the First World War to 1982.

In Die Zweite Heimat (The Second Homeland) we travel back to 1960 and take up the story of Maria's son Hermann who turns his back on his small village and heads to Munich to follow his dream and study music.

During this era-defining decade of cultural, social and political revolution, Hermann finds love and friendship among the Bohemian collection of musicians, filmmakers and writers that populate his new life.

Edgar Reitz saw this Chronicle of a Generation as a journey to 'that place which we, as adults, find: the place we choose of our own free will and which we call our second home.' He achieved the seemingly impossible, a second Heimat, over 25 hours in length, to equal the monumental achievement of his original masterpiece, once again enthralling audiences around the world.
