Shortly before the collapse of the GDR, Helke Misselwitz traveled the country by train to interview East German women of different ages and backgrounds. These women reveal their personal and professional stories, their frustrations, hopes and aspirations, painting a portrait of a changing society.

MUBI's take

Though a series of articulate testimonials, this masterclass in social anthropology from Helke Misselwitz challenges the spurious claims of gender equality propagated by the East German regime. A political sensation on release, Winter Adé is an evocative snapshot from the dying days of the GDR.
