The Story So Far (September 3, 2015)

Since I last wrote I came across an entire East German Rom-Com the other night, which I watched, starring one of the cast of HZP, the actress in question (a Slovak, by birth) speaking both Czech and German, in a film set both in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, where her male love interest was an East German. So, it wasn’t only in the medium of Pop Music shows that some entertainment ‘fraternalism’ went on. That Karin Boyd in the cast list is actually Black and she was playing an African, which must have been unusual…although you did get that Black woman in that Young Generation-like act on East German TV.  It’s all a very revealing exposition on how countries in the former Eastern Bloc related to each other.
