As shown on Der Augenzeuge (The Eyewitness) on East German television, Jürgen Sparwasser of 1. FC Magdeburg tallies in the 77th minute on 22 Jun 1974 as East beats West in their only official international. Writes Nobel Prize–winner Günter Grass of the goal in the World Cup group stage: Sparwasser “trapped it with his head, brought it to his feet, raced in front of the tenacious Vogts and, leaving even Höttges behind, rammed it past Maier into the net.” (1:41)

The list of films accompanies a story on the 2009 11mm Fußballfilmfestival in Berlin, which focuses on cinema and football in the former East Germany. The festival also includes a selection of 11 shorts, “Shortkicks.” Go to main article »
