Filmfest 2007

THE HIDDEN WORD Based on the classic novel by Ulla Hahn, "Teufelsbraten", THE HIDDEN WORLD is the painful yet powerful story of a working class girl's emancipation in the 1950s. Hildegard grows up in an uneducated working class family but she is very much alone in her world, and her desperate, unsuccessful attempts to fit in only succeed in making her even more isolated. Her wild imagination is often ridiculed by her classmates. Despite many setbacks, she reads, reads, reads and driven by her great passion for literature she eventually manages to liberate herself.
