EIGHT POINT OF VIEWS - FOUR GLOBAL EVENTS - FOUR DECADES
CHERNOBYL 1986 - THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL 1989 - NINE ELEVEN - CORONA PANDEMIC 2020
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
But what is ON THIS DAY about?
Do you remember where you have been on Nine eleven? And how did you experience the global cuts such as the Chernobyl disaster, the Gladbeck hostage drama, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the early days when the ongoing Corona pandemic changed suddenly our lives in February/ March 2020?
ON THIS DAY is a documentary that deals with these global events. Understandably, Corona ranks first on the disaster barometer, while other cuts seem to be fading away. However, it is noticeable that the political, medical and media news tsunami triggered by the ongoing corona crisis shows exactly the same patterns of perception as with other global breaks.
The flood of media and news, and how we deal with it as individuals, are very concerning people today. And we ask ourselves the question: Are we emotionally so numbed by the flood of messages that we can no longer really perceive, filter and classify them?
Global warming and environmental protection, the splitting of our society, globalization, dealing with the media and the question of how far the press can go have accompanied us in almost all global cuts of the past four decades.
ON THIS DAY reflects the global changes and effects from a personal point of view and deals with our current media handling.
Is Corona the next dimension?
