Streetphilosophy

S1: 4 x 30’ / S2: 10 x 30’ (GER, FRE, ENG subs)

From the sanctuary of home to the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln: Streetphilosophy takes philosophical questions through the modern city.

Berlin is a city which stands for individualism. Hence, its natives are constantly looking for self-realization and self-affirmation. Plus, as a city where lifestyle is a guideline on how to live, it compels everyone to ask: Who am I? In this series, Jonas is looking for hotspots on the streets of Berlin, where philosophical questions may arise. Far away from the philosophical ivory tower.

Season 1

Streetphilosophy takes philosophical questions on a journey through the modern city: the streets, the public, the kebab shops and the kiosks.

Winner of the 2016 Grimme Award, this fresh new programme takes you up-close to the hopes and fears of Generation Y. Even though it is filmed in black and white, it represents innovation, creativity and the spirit of today.

 

Season 2

In western society religion no longer regulates young people's behaviour, politics doesn't answer their questions, and the philosophies that once created order have become passé. So, what else is there to use as a guideline on how to live life? This is the question Berlin resident Jonas, a representative of Generation Y, hopes to answer in the series Streetphilosophy. After its successful launch in 2016, Jonas hits the streets again in a new season of this award-winning show. Each episode starts with a call-to-action, a philosophical thesis or an ethical demand which is presented in a modern and unusual black-and-white-format.
