“In an attempt to instruct his students about the dangers of fascism and autocracy, a German high-school teacher stages a bold experiment to show how easily such ideas can take root. But the students take to the project rather too eagerly and the experiment gets out of control.”

Filmabende – We are young. We are strong

“In August 1992 in the eastern German city of Rostock a rampaging mob, to the cheering of more than 3,000 bystanders, besieged and set fire to a residential building containing, among others, more than 120 Vietnamese men, women and children. The riots became a symbol for xenophobia in the just recently united Germany. This film recounts the incident from the perspectives of three very different characters.” (IMDB)
