Synopsis
The traces of what we were in our childhood of hwo we got socialized, keep affecting our adult age, even if the circumstances of life are completely different now and we believe, that we’ve settled with the past. This ist why the return to our environment of origin, from where we’ve emerged and from which we departed, is always and at the sam time, a turning-back, a retrospective, a reencounter with our own self – preserved, as well as denied. Then something enters our consciousness, of which we would have liked to believe we’d been liberated from, but which unmistakably structures our own personality: the discomfort of pertaining to two different worlds, lying almost irreconcilably far from each other and yet coexisting in every aspect of our being.

"Class Struggle - Portrait of a Social Origin" sets out to investigate these worlds, illustrating, with the biography of the film director and by means of text quotes ranging from Didier Eribon to Annie Ernaux, the social portrait of an origin, which is representative and exemplary for many who come from the lower strata of society. A theses-proposing movie on class problematics. A hybrid documentary in which, similar to "Brinkmanns Zorn", "Herr von Bohlen" or "All these sleepless nights", the boundaries to the fictional are blurred.
