FOREIGNERS OUT! SCHLINGENSIEFS CONTAINER is a thrilling, insightful, funny chronicle and reflection of one of he biggest public pranks and acts of art terrorism ever committed. Austria 2000: Right after the FPÖ under Jörg Haider had become part of the government, the first time an extreme right wing party became state officials after WW2, infamous German shock director Christoph Schlingensief showed a very unique form of protest. Realising public xenophobia and the new hate politics in the most drastic ways possible, he installed a public concentration camp right in the middle of Vienna's touristic heart, right beside the picturesque opera where hundreds of tourists and locals pass by daily. And it was no concentration camp you had ever feared to return from the old times, but one that cynically reflected our new multimedia culture.

One of the most important and prevailing movies nowadays, where right wing extremism is capturing almost every government in europe and around the world. Not even CH. Schlingensief, this great fighter against racism, right wing extremism could have known in 2002, that Austrian people in 2017 would empower a rout of criminal, corrupt, xenophobic into government. I am so sad about CH. Schlingsiefs passing away so early. We would have needed him today more than ever. On the other hand we austrians can be so proud to have Paul Poet, this brilliant director, writer and producer of the worldwide most important, thrilling and moving documentations. Against all problems and resistencies. Pls. watch his great movie "Empire Me" and "My Talk with Florence" too.
