Alles, was man braucht

Filmforum, Germany 2021, 99 Min., ger. OV

What does our day-to-day life require? Inner-city shopping streets invite you to binge shop, but small-town shops are deserted. The walk to the local store has given way to the drive to the nearest discount store. But not everyone has given up. Across Northern Germany, the filmmaker talks to committed people and projects aiming to revive the food supply chain in the countryside. Because: with the death of the village shop, important social meeting places as well as local traditions have also vanished. With this in mind, Knut and Berit have taken a former school and created a small, lively universe of regional vegetables, friendly chats, and coffee. On a former agricultural production cooperative compound, a farming community with a health food store now lives their utopia of a better world; elsewhere, in Christiansholm, the mayor has permitted a roofed shelter with vending machine to be built at the side of the road. The film is a journey across the country in search of answers to the questions of what we really need and how much.
