Six lesbians who created a private world for themselves despite state repression speak out about life behind the Wall in East Germany. Through intimate romances and lives as mothers and workers, these women, from both rural and metropolitan areas, found a way to exist.

MUBI's take

A powerful act of archive making, Uferfrauen gives a captivating account of lesbian life in the GDR. At once intimate, defiant, and moving, the experiences of six women merge the personal and political, whilst always focusing on the enduring power of love in the fight for freedom and equality.
