Paweł Pawlikowski
Oscar winner Paweł Pawlikowski depicts the mobilisation and perversion of folk culture by nationalist warlords. Under thunder and lightning, Bosnia-Herzegovina is newly divided up on the map. Even today, the portrait that emerges of poetry-writing politician Radovan Karadžić is astounding in its immediacy.

Where is Russia’s new place in the world order? This 1995 film is an ironic and pointed portrait of a politician that accompanies a careerist on his election campaign cruise on the Volga. On the testing ground for democracy, patriotism generates absurd ideas and new fears – as well as fodder for the western media.
