Little Addendum (1998)

Synopsis
A two minute political fantasy, Gunther Scholz's LITTLE ADDENDUM was greeted by amused shock and howls of laughter when it premiered at the 1998 Berlinale in the short film competition. The "report" refers to a bid to host the 2004 Olympic Games in Leipzig. The setting is the GDR Politburo where the voice of Erich Honecker is heard. "Our bid, of course, assumes that the German Democratic Republic will still be around in the year 2004." The LITTLE ADDENDUM to Honnecker's speech was made just days before the fall of the Berlin wall.
