The Kristallglasmanufaktur Theresienthal, a producer of fine glassware, had been an integral part of Max Hannes‘s life for 39 years. In April 2001, the glassworks was forced to file for bankruptcy – one of 40,000 company to fold in Germany in that year. For the people of Theresienthal, it meant the end of a centuries-old tradition of glass-making.
THE UNBREAKABLES accompanies Max Hannes, Christoph Glaser, Mirjam Storim, and the glass-makers of Theresienthal over a period of three years in their struggle to save one of Germany’s oldest companies. A story of salvation that inspires hope – for only after the glass-makers of Theresienthal had lost everything were they able to make the future happen.
