We are Democracy

Wir sind Demokratie

Capitalism and democracy - is this apparent forced marriage heading for divorce? Has the triumphal march of capitalism left democracy, and we citizens with it, to fall by the wayside? Taking examples in Spain, Germany, Iceland, Switzerland and Austria, this film examines concrete alternatives to gauge their effectiveness. From symbolic ideas, the implementation of new economic systems and the education of young people about democracy, to the participation of citizens in government, people throughout Europe are looking for something with which to counter a society in crisis.
Documenting, scrutinising and reflecting on this essential exploratory movement for new contemporary forms of social and economic coexistence in light of the current situation constitutes the abiding undertone of this documentary film, its images and its narrative.
