»When I was very young, I wrote in my diary, and this is still a guide for me today. I dreamed that life was a dream. When I woke up, I saw that life was no dream. And then I could not fall alseep again.« This is what Günter Wallraff, the journalist and writer, says about his motive power at the beginning of the film. Today he is a lecturer in great demand all over the world, but also hated by great parts of the German trades and industries, the civil press and the political right wing for his false identities and agonizing exposures of the working methods of the Bild Zeitung and for his disclosures of the treatment of Turks in Germany. For two years Günter Wallraff lived as the Turk, named Ali. Today he lives in Cologne, and from his study Wallraff tells about the circumstances of the Gipsies, about historidal responsibility and intellectual poverty, about social pecking order and the always present risk of Fascism.

dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
