With his "Heimatfilme", ​​his actions and interventions in theater, television, opera and in the art circuit, director Christoph Schlingensief has contributed for more than two decades in orienting the political and cultural debate in Germany. In her virtuoso directorial debut, the acclaimed editor Bettina Böhler tries to restore a complete image of this exceptional artist with an incredibly entertaining documentary. The film traces the entire evolution of Schlingensief: from the paroxysms of his artistic "puberty" to the scenic revolution in the theaters of Berlin and Bayreuth up to his definitive recognition as a leading artist and the invitation, shortly before his death, to set up the German pavilion at the Venice Biennale. This powerful portrait communicates to the viewer all his irrepressible energy, and commemorated the 1010th year anniversary of his death.
