With Margit Carstensen, Peter Kern, Susanne Bredehöft, Alfred Edel, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, Udo Kier. Germany, right after the reunification. As a reaction to the events in the eastern German town of Hoyerswerda, where, in 1991, a group of neo-Nazis and their supporters attacked a building inhabited by immigrants from several different countries, Schlingensief made this film about two gangsters on the run who torture asylum seekers in the provincial town of Rassau and are fawned over by a flock of reporters eager to receive first-person accounts of the events. This is the final film in Schlingensief’s German Trilogy.
