Germany 2015 – Director: Sabine Ehrl – German original version

Germany 2015 – Director: Sophie Linnenbaum, Sophia Bösch – German original version

Do you know them too? The casual right-wingers, who, over coffee and cake, like to begin their sentences with, “ I don’t have anything against them, but…” MEINUNGSAUSTAUSCH tracks prejudices and how they are spread, broken down and ultimately maintained ad absurdum.

Germany 2016 – Director: Sebastian Binder – English subtitles

Without pressure, nothing seems to happen. But if the pressure increases, there is stress. A ludicrous and highly stylised panopticon that assures us, with a wink of the eye, that we are a product of our own stress.
