Montags in Dresden
“Who protests here and what are their reasons? What do they really want?” director Sabine Michel asks at the start of the film. To find this out she followed three convinced early Pegida supporters, including a former member of the organisation team, René Jahn. With its open-minded interest in the life and mindsets of its protagonists, the film gets very close to the phenomena which often seem containable only by hackneyed phrases: angry citizens, fake media, the left-behinds, the elites.
