A film about the extraordinary courage of young individuals in a time of political oppression, THE SILENT REVOLUTION is the gripping true story of a group of students in 1956 East Germany, and how their lives are changed forever by a harmless human act of solidarity.
During a visit to the cinema in West Berlin, high school students Theo (Leonard Scheicher, "Das Boot") and Kurt (Tom Gramenz) see dramatic newsreel footage of the Hungarian uprising in Budapest. Back at school in Stalinstadt, they spontaneously decide to hold a moment of silence in solidarity with the victims of the uprising. The gesture causes bigger ripples than expected. The People's Educational Minister (Burghart KlauÃŸner, THE WHITE RIBBON) condemns the action as counterrevolutionary and demands at the ringleader be named within a week. But the students stick together, facing a decision that will change their lives forever.
