Inhalt

Amongst Germans

What is German identity, German culture after reunification? No issue occupies the Germans as much as their identity; nevertheless, it is always being covered up. Troller and his team travelled over the course of one year throughout this new "Transgermania" (as it is already called abroad).

A journey through a land that can′t be reduced to a common denominator? An inspection of present German conditions: films, towns, villages, carnival and Octoberfest, workers, artists, refined people, Troller and his team took part in the wedding of a black man with a chic Munich girl ("the main thing is that he′s not a Prussian", the bride′s father said) - in an ecumenical mass for animals (do the Germans love animals more than people?), spoke with chimney sweeps, whores, roadhogs, tramps, duelling fraternities, neo-Nazis... Germany′s intellectual elite also appear, from Grass to Heiner Mueller, from Doris Doerrie to Reich-Ranicki. And questions are always being asked about German identity and self-assessment, past and hope for the future.
