Summary, etc.:
This short animation film gives an entertaining overview of the events leading to the Reformation.. In 1515, Martin Luther (1483-1546)́a pastor, writer, and lecturer at the University of Wittenberǵwrites the Ninety-Five Theses, in protest against the sale of indulgences and the teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. German printing shops print and distribute this work and, in doing so, help spread Lutheŕs ideas. In 1521, however, a meeting of leaders, bans Lutheŕs texts and accuses him of heresy.. Winner at the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film. FIPRESCI Honorable Mention at Leipzig Documentary and Short Film Week.. ́With sly humor, this film presents the Reformation as a media revolution!́ ́G©ơnter Vogler, Luther oder M©ơntzer?
