One day at Europapark, the largest amusement park in Germany. Ms. Spohler – Claussen of Hannover, the world champion of amusement park visitors, gives a tour past eternally smiling visitors and employees eternally sweeping up cigarette butts.Director’s Statement:
“The film is a small part of an earlier, very complex concept for a long film focused on people who are stressed out about spending their leisure time. As for the storyline, I think, it is my weakest.”
Ulrich Seidl (1952, Vienna) is the director of numerous award-winning documentaries such as Jesus, du weißt [Jesus, You Know], Models [Models] and Tierische Liebe [Animal Love]. His work methods, achieving the greatest possible authenticity and showing people in the most solitary and personal moments, has aroused intense debate. His first fiction feature, Hundstage [Dog Days], won the Jury’s Grand Prix at the 2001 Venice Film Festival. Import Export is the first film that Seidl has also produced.
