Made in 1965 to encourage discussion of democratization of East German society, this film was quickly banned by officials as an attack on the state. "The Rabbit is Me" earned critical praise after 1989 as one of the most important and courageous works ever filmed by DEFA. In it, a young student has an affair with a hypocritical judge who had once sentenced her brother for his political activities; she eventually confronts him with his opportunism and contribution to injustice.

German with English subtitles 

Director: Maetzig, Kurt, b/w, 113 min., 1965
