The Screen Guide

This documentary examines the unified Germany's identity crisis as it continues to grapple with the legacy of its Nazi past. It concentrates on the perspective of German writers like Gunter Grass and Stefan Heym, Peter Schneider and Achim Trenker, and argues that far from moving to the extreme right as it's so often portrayed, Germany is moving to the left. The documentary also posits that Germany's encouragement of a strong European Union is a way of avoiding nationhood with all the connotations of a dangerous past that Germany has - Germans become Europeans instead of confronting the question of what it is to be German.
