Die Wende (2009, 7 min 25), “the Turn” in German, is the story of a group of women from former East Germany who are training to perform a particular movement in synchronized swimming, called “die Wende”, in which the swimmer performs an underwater backwards loop. Thee women, most of them over 60, are part of a still active East German association (Verein) and have been training together for over 20 years now.
