Michael von Graffenried: Bierfest
All year long, the people of Munich look forward to Oktoberfest. When the time finally comes, the city's inhabitants, joined by thousands of tourists from all over the world, don their lederhosen and dirndls and gather on the "Wiesn." With seven million liters of beer flowing at record speed, social boundaries soon dissolve. The grass by the tents becomes a makeshift urinal and is steadily strewn with intoxicated corpses, while the police and medical teams try to keep up with sinking inhibition thresholds. Bierfest shines light on the decadent side of the world's most famous folk festival, and celebrates its nostalgia and mass delirium in equal measure.
