Carbide and Sorrel

Karbid und Sauerampfer

Directed by Frank Beyer
East Germany, 1963


After the second World War, Dresden has a lot of reconstructing to do. Cigarette plant employee Karl “Kalle” Bluecher totes several barrels of carbide – without a truck- over hundreds of miles of obstacle-packed roads, from Wittenberg to the barely-surviving cigarette factory in Dresden.
