Die Grenze Franz Winzentsen

The victors have reinforced Germany’s internal border on the map with endlessly renewed pencil markings, and their eraser has worn itself out. A graphical experiment.

Jorge – Tod eines Vertragsarbeiters Matthias Heeder, Monika Hielscher

The film reconstructs the violent death of a Mozambican who was thrown off a tram in Dresden in 1991, and attempts to piece together his life. A xenophobia that reared its new and ugly head directly after reunification. Depressingly topical.
