Love across the Iron Curtain

Hosted by

In 1985 Gabriele was hitchhiking in East Germany, where she lived. By chance she was given a ride by a visiting American named Mark. They fell in love, but these were the days when the Berlin Wall was still standing. Mark and Gabriele continued their relationship and the only thing standing between them was an iron curtain.

Produced by Kerstin Zilm, an independent producer from Germany now based in Los Angeles, edited by Nick White. Mark and Gabriele Hayes are currently working on a documentary called Skid Row Marathon.
