See this documentary film: This Ain't California @ the Coolidge

The kids are skateboarding and acting cool, all right, but as the title of Martin Perseil's offbeat documentary makes clear, This Ain't California (2012). It is, in fact, '70s East Berlin, where three boys rebel against the stringent Marxist regime by imitating Western punks. The years pass and it is suddenly 1989 - the Wall has fallen, the kids have grown up, and now they must redefine their identities. A quirky insight into a key period of 20th century history, it screens as part of the Goethe-Institut Boston film program at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard Ave, Brookline | Sunday, September 16 @ 11 am | $5 | 617.734.2501 or
