    • Synopsis
    • The movie Souvenir centers around Alfred D. who refers to himself as an „Exporter of democracy“. On behalf of German foundations Alfred has been travelling the world for over 20 years in order to establish democratic awareness and constitutional structures. The passionate amateur filmmaker captured his missions on hundreds of videotapes and not least he filmed himself, enacting his life abroad in front of the camera or more recently documenting his campaign as a candidate in the European election. In Souvenir historical, political and personal filmic documents meet and interact to create an unusual portrait.
