Today, the Potsdam Film Museum opened the photo exhibition Streiflichter (‘Rays of light'). Photographs taken during the Leipzig Documentary Film Week between 1960 and 1989 can be seen at the exhibition until November 1st, 2015. 24,000 images by photographer Reinhard Podszuweit show snapshots of the film festival. The photographer took the position of 'Photographic Service of the DEFA Documentary Film Studios' in 1959, and in 1960 attended Leipzig Documentary Film Week. With these images, Reinhard Podszuweit comprehensively documented the GDR period of our festival. The images not only supplement the collection of the Potsdam Film Museum, but also shed new light on the development of documentary film.
