SynopsisDemocracy is up for discussion at the moment. Not only in the United States. The language of politics is changing dramatically. In times of fake news and populist movements, 78-year-old German politician Hans-Christian Ströbele looks like an anachronism: he was a lawyer for the Red Army Faction (RAF) in the 1970s, one of the editors of Die Tageszeitung (taz), a cooperative-owned daily newspaper, and over the years he has become the conscience of the Green Party.
Ströbele is about to leave the political arena. As a contemporary witness he remains indispensable. What is his legacy? What does the biography of this upright, authentic and sometimes inconvenient man tell us? A portrait.
