In the Erzgebirge a West German “investor” calls the residents „natives“ who had better decide whether they want his money. The Leipzig Round Table rejects Coca Cola as a sponsor for a music event. In Görlitz a young city councillor botches a “Waiters’ Contest”. In Laubusch a minister observes the arrival of the first German expats from the Ukraine in Direct Cinema style. Images that can’t be found in any public television archive: local television reports. The camera is close and everywhere, the unbiased interviewers are neighbours of their viewers and themselves involved in the processes they record, calling for feedback and taking up a position.
