A Film by Eva Weber
Driven by extensive archive material and interviews with those who know her, this is the astonishing story of how a triple outsider – a woman, a scientist, and an East German – became the de facto leader of the Free world, told for the first time for an international audience.
- “Diligent but mostly favourable, Eva Weber’s documentary feature unfolds many of the layers that Merkel cloaked herself in.” – Craig Mathieson (Sydney Morning Herald)
- “She may not make the most exciting subject on personality alone, and the film shows that strain, but her remarkable life and accomplishments more than make up for it.” – Jude Dry (indieWire)
- “An apt tribute to a political ground-breaker.” – Stephen Farber (Hollywood Reporter)
