Summary
At a time of growing nationalism, DEMOCRACY is an essential, inside-look at the European Union's political machinations. Filmed over several years, the film grants unprecedented access to the negotiations over General Data Protection Regulation, a highly controversial issue. Rapporteur Jan Philipp Albrecht is the German Green Party politician tasked with steering and overseeing the entire process. We see him talking with lobbyists and civil rights activists, joining fringe gatherings and debates, participating in think tanks, talking with colleagues in the corridors of power, and reporting to EU Commissioner Viviane Reding. DEMOCRACY sheds needed light on the complex power structures that govern Europe, to offer a snapshot of democracy at work today. Nominated for Best Documentary at the German Film Awards. "A subtle, human, optimistic, sensual portrayal.. a triumph. It rewards contemplative viewing and is a visual delight, with a lovely play between the inner and outside worlds of the EU institutions, in a style reminiscent of Terrence Malick. Hopefully, too, it draws a wider audience to the critical importance of data protection and the conflicts that surround it." - The Guardian. "..A rare and insightful glimpse into the inner workings of the European Parliament..(this) stylishly made documentary offers viewers access to an extremely opaque legislation process that is still far from over." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
