Over a period of three years, the film accompanies four AfD members of Parliament in their work. We see them forging strategies, writing texts and in contact with citizens. VOLKSVERTRETER offers us an accurate and close look at their work processes and leaves the classification and judgement of their political actions up to us as an audience. Daniel Sponsel
