Only Worth Half as Much (1978)

In spring 1978 the metal industry for the first time was confronted with skills problems. Together with his crew director Thomas Mitscherlich watched the industrial dispute in Reutlingen for six weeks. This film is not an analytical one but rather an atmospheric report, which defends the metalworkers’ point of view. The film’s rough cut, made out of 44 hours of material, was first shown to the people concerned - their suggestions and all of their critical comment was then considered in the final version.
