Uno di Noi

(collaboration as cinematographer)

uno di noi

Alexander Langer, co-founder of the Italian Green Party and party leader in the European Parliament,
wanted to engage with communities of any possible form. He worked restlessly for underprivileged people and groups,
for those speaking minority languages, for those belonging to different religions.
Because of his determined commitment Alexander Langer earned everybody's respect,
even beyond the boundaries of the parliamentary party and was considered one of the masterminds in European politics.
"If you have visions, you should consult a doctor", the German ex-Chancellor Helmut Schmidt once said.
Alexander Langer did not follow this advice. In the summer of 1995 he hanged himself in the hills near Florence.
UNO DI NOI reflects upon the vision Alexander Langer had of Europe.
The starting point are some of the speeches he gave to the European Parliament between 1989 and 1995.
From there, the film gathers opinions and contributions from individuals who share Alexander Langer’s ideals and values,
and who took on, with different means and in different forms, the fight for a fairer and better world.
From their words and experiences, it emerges how difficult this fight is and what huge means of repression their resistance faces.
Our film reveals how, in light of the drastic changes our planet has undergone, we are more then ever in need in need of figures like Alexander Langer,
who are courageous enough to stand up for ethical values in an ever-changing, globalising world...
