More diversity, fewer stereotypes in fiction - this is the demand of the hour and for many the key to the future success of German film production. What does being German currently look like in film and series? Whose story is told, what milieus and settings are being shown, what role do origin, gender or sexual orientation play? Experts provide practical insight and discuss whether and how cinematic narratives hit the nerve of our present and our multi-faceted society. What has to happen so that the manifold and often ambivalent everyday reality of the audience becomes the reality of the characters in film and series more often? Are filmmakers, who usually live in similar, homogeneous environments, open to the diversity of the urban and rural milieus? And vice versa: to what extent are the viewers prepared for diversity at all?
