Germany 2021 – Director: Daniel Sager – Original language: English, German – Subtitles: English, German, None – Length: 90 min.

Austria's Vice-Chancellor Strache wanted to aim high and ends his political career in a vodka-soaked night in Ibiza. What appeared to the public to be a well-staged farce had kept a whole team of journalists on tenterhooks for months. An important film.
