A German Party

Simon Brückner
Germany
 - 2022

A look inside the Alternative for Germany (AfD), beyond the spectacle of the media. Simon Brückner’s exclusive access to local, state and federal levels leads into the back rooms of a controversial party struggling with internal conflicts. Direct Cinema in the communication space of an organisation whose radical wing candidates fight against supposed moderates. ‘A German Party’ is the uncomfortable document of a historical stocktaking. A journey to people on the border of democracy.

Simon Brückner

Born in 1978, the filmmaker is the initiator of filmArche, founded in Berlin in 2001, which is now the largest self- organised film school in Europe. In 2007, he graduated from the film directing course there with the feature-length documentary ‘Schöne blonde Augen’ (2005). He also took a degree in cultural studies, sociology and European ethnology at the Humboldt University in Berlin. His second feature-length documentary ‘From the Sideline’ (2015) won the German-language competition at DOK.fest Munich and was nominated for a Grimme Award. Alongside filmmaking, he also works in radio and as a script consultant and lecturer.
