Combative cinema is known from the work of directors such as Ken Loach, Spike Lee and Michael Moore. These are directors who express anger about the world's injustice in their films. One chooses fictional film as his weapon, the other documentary film.

Different as they may be, their films stand up for us ordinary people. This program is a filmic anthology, compiled and presented by Gerlinda Heywegen, with succinct fragments which, dependent on their creator, are funny, very angry or utterly artful. Film as weapon, film about "us" and for "us". Including excerpts from Do the Right Thing, Bowling for Columbine and I, Daniel Blake.
