The car’s driver, journalist Hanno Settle, uses this and other playful tasks to supplement traditional discussions with the presidential candidates.

The Magnificent Five (working title)
After living in an institution for twenty-eight years, Petr relocates to a training apartment, where he is preparing for a possible move into the “real world”. This untraditional look at a socially sensitive issue from the inside out, without the standard preconceived views of sympathy or irony, shows that the basic principles underlying interpersonal relationships are always the same – touching, humorous, and fragile.

Heinz-Christian Strache – Ibiza video
Before the Austrian parliamentary elections in 2017, Heinz-Christian Strache, Head of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), agreed to support the alleged family of a Russian oligarch in exchange for counter-services. This agreement was revealed thanks to a video filmed in secret. A fundamental issue in ethical journalism is whether it is, at all, permissible within the public interest to provoke a situation and capture it all on a hidden camera.
