St. Pauli at night and the decline of a brick factory in small-town GDR: two early films by Roland Klick and Volker Koepp.

›Märkische Ziegel‹, the first installment in Volker Koepp's Märkische Trilogy, documents the decline of a brick factory in Zehdenick at the river Havel. A chronicle, as masterful as it is depressing, of people who have lost hope. And, at the same time, a study of a company and a country in which decay is everywhere. Awarded a Filmdukat in Mannheim in 1989.

This film is part of a programme with: ›Jimmy Orpheus‹
