Her fourth term in office and also mean the last few months in which she acts as head of government of the Federal Republic of Germany. Because after 16 years your chancellorship is coming to an end in September. UFA Documentary has produced a five-part documentary about the life story of Angela Merkel exclusively for TV Now in collaboration with UFA Fiction. “Angela Merkel – Ms. Chancellor” stands up from June 29th TV Now ready to stream.

A cinematic portrait

The documentation chronologically traces Angela Merkel’s life using archive recordings. From her birth and growing up in socialism, the turnaround, the rise in the CDU to party leadership and chancellorship. The largest and most comprehensive film portrait of Angela Merkel to date is a joint project. Stefan Aust, journalist and publisher of the world, was in charge, and at his side was co-author Katrin Klocke, managing editor of Spiegel TV. In your film you mainly deal with questions about the political and social development of the Merkel era. What was your time and what influence does it have on German and international politics? What other decisions will it make in the minds of Germans? The authors also show, arrange and condense recordings that have seldom been seen of the first woman in the Federal Chancellery.

“The documentary shows the political adventure of a woman from the East with a church-socialist background,” says Stefan Aust. The studied physicist, adapted to the system of the GDR, seized her chance during the time of reunification and also fought her way up to the top of a party with which she originally had little agreement. “She was stronger than the men in her party and left many of them on the verge of history,” continues Stefan Aust. “It changed, modernized the party, expanded it to the left – and thus left space for right-wing parties on the right edge. The CDU shrank, as did the SPD, so the political landscape after Merkel is different than it was before her time. “
