BMW "The small escape" by Jung von Matt

The year is 1964 and the place is Berlin, a divided city where flight from the German Democratic Republic is punished with an order to fire.

Yet many people tried to cross the border by forging identity papers, digging tunnels, climbing into hot-air balloons or hiding in cars going West. BMW’s film is based on the true story of Klaus-Günter Jacobi, who helped his best friend flee East Germany by smuggling him across the Berlin Wall in a BMW Isetta. It was directed by Alex Feil.
