Heiner Müller’s highly provocative adaption of Brecht’s „The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui“ has toured widely for over two decades, performing over 400 stagings around the globe. During this time the ensemble has created an unimaginably dedicated and loyal worldwide audience; including a married couple that has seen this work over 300 times.
 This documentary draws on both the actors onstage and the crew backstage as they finally travel with this production to Israel. Here we accompany a German troupe with their concerns and heightened anxiety about performing in Tel Aviv; however they experience unforeseen reactions from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation holocaust survivors.
 „The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui“ uses powerful insights that make contrasting, razor-sharp points: on one hand it dramatizes the atrocities of the 20th century, and on the other it reveals parallels in the 21st century with its challenge to the primacy of capitalism and its deadly credo: there is not enough to go around.
