Synopsis
The feature documentary A GERMAN PARTY shows inside views of the AfD. It delves deep into the working lives of the party’s politicians and officials. The audience is right in the middle of the political action and experiences the struggles for direction in the party, the rebellion of its supporters against a „decadent establishment“. We experience the AfD’s own antics, its resentments, worlds of ideas and self-dramatizations.
The party’s continued drift to the right proves to be just as real as the dream of government participation and coalition capability. Demagogues and tacticians encounter offended conservatives, opponents of the zeitgeist, and political beginners in search of the very different. In the process, an AfD emerges that is not in every respect as the cliché would have it.
Director Simon Brückner worked with a 2-man team and got as close to his protagonists over the years of filming as is not possible for journalists in everyday reporting. The extraordinary thing about this film is the exclusive access to numerous politicians and committees at all levels of the AfD. The film works without interviews and does not comment on what is shown, but leaves the classification to the audience itself.
