this movie is one of the be political documentaries ever done in Germany. It documents and inquires the visit of the Shah of Persia in 1967 and the surrounding events. For those not familiar with the history. During one demonstration a guy was murdered by the police. His name is Benno Ohnesorg. Until now there are very few moments that shaped the ways of German political work as profound as this murder. But Brodmann's film is not about the murder, but about the amazingly brutal use of police forces during the Shah's visit to Berlin. If you're looking for a contemporary source to understand the German leftists from the sixties and seventies this is a must see for you. Unfortunately this movie is not yet published on DVD. It is, however, published on VHS in a collection of documentaries done by the German TV.
