A violent supermarket incident involving a refugee in East Germany is reenacted in a film studio. Ten citizens observe and comment on the case, which highlights the blurred distinction between civil courage and vigilante justice.
Producer / Director Mario Pfeifer's (*1981, Dresden / Germany) films explore representational structures and conventions in the medium of film and video, in locations ranging from Mumbai to New York, from Brazil to the Atacama desert, from Tierra del Fuego to East-Germany to the Western Sahara. He conceives each project out of a specific cultural situation, researches social-political backgrounds and weaves cross-cultural art historical, filmic, technological and political references into a richly layered practice.
