Balloon 12A

Mon 29 Jul – Thu 1 Aug


Two East German families who build a hot-air balloon to try and escape to West Germany during the Cold War.

Purchasing the cloth in different towns to avoid rousing suspicion and sewing over a million square-metres of fabric in secret, after a botched first attempt the families become increasingly desperate to try again as they come under increasing surveillance from the East German secret police.

A tense, gripping thriller based on an incredible true story.
