In front of the harbour of Hamburg an unoccupied ship has anchored. Because the crew is infiltrated by the marine of the Communist International, they call for help of further revolutionary cells. They take possession of the consciousness of a documentary film maker who actually aimed to make a film about the harbour.
The film Hölle Hamburg (2007, 88 min., R.: Peter Ott and Ted Gaier) refers to the didactic play Die Maßnahme by Brecht/Eisler/Dudek and the ethnological film Les Maitres Fous by Jean Rouch. The film is about life in times of Post-Fordism and how power takes possession of us.
Directed by: Peter Ott, Ted Gaier, Camera: Deborah Schamoni. With: Martina Schiesser, Ibrahima Sanogo, Bill Parton, Olajide Akinyosoye, Dschingis Bowakow, Andreas Matti, Matthias Breitenbach, Moses Holl and more.
