    • Synopsis
    • The "German Fall" was a trauma for the few German intellectuals and artists who remained critical and refused to give in to panic. German filmmakers who then directed films on the RAF were condemned by politicians who saw a link between criticism of the state response, and support to the RAF; between the possibility to fathom contemporary history, and an apology of terrorism.
