Inhalt

The Ballad of Jenny G.

The story of a woman in love with the stage and screen, art and life... of a non-conformist coping in the two Germanies spanning division and reunification. Jenny Groellmann (1947-2006) was one of the great character actors of the GDR whose presence on stage and the strength of the characters she played would have carried her effortlessly, under other circumstances, into the annals of world cinema. She was an exceptional actress who rose to the heights of her art, sank to oblivion with the end of an era, was publicly defamed and ultimately vindicated.
The Ballad of Jenny G. is an insightful portrait of a strong, fascinating woman and consummate artist in extraordinary times. Clips from Groellmann’s stellar career on screen are intercut with intimate and revealing scenes of her later life and with the words of her friends and colleagues. Her life and her performances in film mesh to produce a compelling document, combining the public and the private; interweaving the singular history of East German cinema and that of the two Germanies with a searching portrayal of the late Jenny Groellmann and her art.
