Austrian director Robert Schabus makes a timely and insightful investigation into the crisis of democracy around Europe and the seemingly unstoppable rise of populism. He finds a chorus of dissatisfaction across considerable sections of society which are not reflected in political representation and are at the mercy of the marketplace. Laid off French factory workers bemoan the outsourcing of labour, German jobseekers have to take poorly paid jobs because of market reforms, the decline in British national industries fuels Brexit and Greek austerity programmes are punishingly harsh for local economies.
