Weltstadt (2008)

Sobre o filme

In the night of June 16, 2004, in a picturesque East German town, two drunk teenage boys attacked a homless man in the steets. When they realized that he had no valuables, they bashed him and set him on fire. Weltstadt portrays five characters, 24 hours prior to the crime: Karsten and Til (the characters), Steffi (Till’s girlfriend), the policeman Günter and the snack bar owner Heinrich. Based on a true story the film depicts an aspect of German society that is often overlooked. The media only treats it with lurid headlines and fake contempt. But what is really going on? In this fictitious story we try to shed light on an act of violence that really occurred. Karsten, Till, Steffi, Günter and Heinrich are average Germans, living a small town life, in a state of mediocrity and apathy. But sometimes indifference turns into aggression, boredom into violence.
