R is for Rosa - A film series on Rosa Luxemburg!

Revolutionary, radical, polarising. It is impossible to imagine the history of the 20th century without Rosa Luxemburg. But who was Rosa Luxemburg and what did she stand for? Her legacy is told in four short films, from her thoughts to her work.

How did Rosa become one of the leading theoreticians of German social democracy from prison? Why did she go too far in the eyes of some revolutionaries and what can she teach us about struggles today? Find out all this in the four short videos.

Episode 1: Reform or Revolution

Rosa Luxemburg flees Poland, the revolution breaks out and she finds herself unrecognised in the middle of the action in Warsaw. After her stay in prison, she writes a text that shakes the reformist leaders of Western Europe to their foundations. Eventually, she becomes the leading theoretician of German social democracy.
