the red carpet

Content | Watch clip



the red carpet is a persiflage about the protocol at state receptions, which take place every day all over the world and as you can watch them on TV: handshakes, smiling faces, heavily symbolic gesticulations. The film shows world leaders from a different perspective and focuses below the ordinary TV-surface. It exposes what is happening before the recurrent well known pictures are taken. The film was shot on the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany in june 2007.
