Documentary film Souvenir

The movie Souvenir centers around Alfred D. who refers to himself as an
„Exporter of democracy“. On behalf of German foundations Alfred
has been travelling the world for over 20 years in order to establish
democratic awareness and constitutional structures. The passionate
amateur filmmaker captured his missions on hundreds of videotapes and
not least he filmed himself, enacting his life abroad in front of the
camera or more recently documenting his camapaign as a candidate in
the European election. In Souvenir historical, political and personal
filmic documents meet and interact to create an unsual portrait.
