Wednesday February 1 CPH:DOX screens in collaboration with DOXBIO Lise Birk Pedersen’s brand new documentary ‘Power to the People?’ about the Italian Five Star Movement, as well as launches new festival focus.

Western democracy is faltering. The people are revolting against the power elite, and populism is winning. “Send them (the politicians) home!” they shouted in Italy, and elected 163 politically inexperienced “normal people” to parliament.

Documentary ‘Power to the People?’ follows the first dramatic year after this democratic experiment. Grillo in Italy. Trump in the USA. What’s about to happen in these countries?

CPH:DOX is showing ‘Power to the People’ with DOXBIO on February 1 all over country, where the festival will simultaneously launch one of its big themes this year: The big populist movement, that in the last years has seriously affected Europe. At the viewings in Grand Teatret, CPH:DOX will uncover the films in the festival’s populism theme, which will nuance questions like:

Is the liberal world order about to be undermined? Or is there someone that will listen to the people after many years of elitist arrogance and necessity politics.

‘Power to the People?’ will be shown February 1 at Christiansborg with a following live debate transmitted all over the country, which will be then taken to home turf to understand the consequences in Denmark of the new political reality.

Anja Bo will lead the debate, which will have the following participants:

Folketing members Pelle Dragsted (Ø), Yildiz Akdogan (S), Uffe Elbæk (A), Bertel Haarder (V)

Youth Politicians Viktor Boysen (B), Andreas Weidinger (K), Nanna Bonde (SF)

Experts Sine Nørholm Just (rhetoric, media and influence), Lars Trier Mogensen (political journalism), Poul Madsen (editor in chief, Ekstra Bladet)
