The Chancellor (2006)

A different and surprising perspective of the first woman to occupy the position of German Chancellor

For one year Angela Merkel has been the first woman chancellor of Germany. She had a wonderful start in her new office and made a convincing entrance to international politics. However, the initial euphoric mood was followed by an equally unmistakable sense of disappointment. The reform projects faltered, and arguments about health reform brought the "black-red" coalition to its first crisis. Film-maker Claudia Bissinger and Merkel biographer Evelyn Roll assess her first year in government and ask how Angela Merkel, one of the most powerful women in international politics, has fared.
This turns out to be a different and surprising perspective on the first woman to take the job of German Chancellor.
