The Legacy of Bambule (1970) : On the Perils of the Memory Culture of the German 68 Movement Stuhlmann, Andreas


The fiftieth anniversary of the events of 1968 and the fortieth anniversary of the crisis of the so-called ‘Deutsche Herbst’ (German Autumn) of 1977/78 have rekindled interest in the history of the TV drama. Bambule (Riot). It is the story of rebellion in an institution for girls. It was a joint project of director Eberhard Itzenplitz and journalist Ulrike Meinhof, but it never aired until 1994. My talk will focus the work on a critical edition of Bambule, including the other adaptation of the script.
