THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Documentary by Andreas Wilcke
In 2017 for the first time in german post war history a right wing party gains access to the german federal parliament forming the biggest opposition party.
Over the period of 3 years the filmmaker has portrayed 4 OF THEM.
The camera follows them very closely when they create their content by mincing words and when they unfold their opinions by the use of social media and by directly speaking to the people in pubs and on the streets. Thus the viewer/spectator is getting a very rare look behind the curtains of the political circus as such and especially of the mechanismns of populism. Nevertheless this film is a potrait of a society in which image is everything.
