Synopsis
STATUS AND TERRAIN tells the story of an escalation. Its point of departure are the so-called early concentration camps. Set up immediately after the National Socialist seizure of power they aimed at the elimination of political opponents. Today these camps are largely forgotten. STATUS AND TERRAIN is about the way time has overwritten these sites, and about how different political cultures of remembrance have become inscribed in them. The Film entangles three periods of German History. They form a loose narrative in which violence as a means of imposing power plays a pivotal role.
