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 Wittenberg—writes 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 Luther’s ideas. In 1521, however, a meeting of leaders, bans Luther’s 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!” —Günter Vogler, Luther oder Müntzer?
