10 July 2009 - 07 March 2010. In honour of the Sandman's 50th birthday, the Film Museum Potsdam is celebrating the children's legend and television star with an extensive exhibition. 50 years ago, when East Germany got wind of West Germany's plan to devise a television character of this nature, they immediately invented their own who made his debut eight days before his rival. Each night since then, all German children have viewed the Sandman as he reads them bedtime stories and blows a bag of 'dream sand' over them. After reunification in 1990, the East German Sandman was selected by tv bosses to be the 'pan-German Sandman'. The show is divided into three parts including the character's world, experiments and dreamland.
