HAMBURGER GITTER / Hamburg Grids

HAMBURGER GITTER / Hamburg Grids

Hamburg, July 2017. 31,000 policemen, 20 governments, 100,000 protesters – a city seemingly traumatised. One year after the G20 summit government officials call for severe punishment and the police pulls out all stops in their search for hunderts of suspects. Could the summit signal a new approach in dealing with protest?

Steffen Maurer
Steffen Maurer started realizing his first few film projects already during his school days. In 2013, while in Mexico, he created his first short documentary film. Shortly thereafter he studied directing at "FilmArche", a time during which time he produced countless short documentaries about protest and social movements.
