The personal stories about Chernobyl, the Gladbeck drama, the fall of the Berlin Wall and September 11 are told without the well-known news images. They are the linchpin of ON THIS DAY.
Why is our world today as it is and which role does mediatized testimony plays in it?
Our protagonists transport their memories of past events into our present and ask themselves whether we as individuals want to be seen as so-called "news consumers" and how we want to deal with them in the future.
What can we do about it?
Our film is meant to stimulate thought and to raise our awareness of the importance of information, news and media in our lives.
ON THIS DAY is aimed at everyone who remembers the four global events and those who are interested, who would like to learn more about these events and who are interested in how we deal with today's news and media consumption. In addition, our film is aimed at all those who ask themselves: How will we deal with it in the future and what can we change or improve?
The personal stories of our protagonists are in the focus. They make the movie with its past events and their personal memories on it, visible and noticeable to the audience.
They transport these events into our current world.
With our documentary we would like to show different approaches and ways of thinking - of how we can better sensitize and filter our awareness of our daily use of media, the news and the information by looking at "Our world of tomorrow".
