AUFGETISCHT (DISHED UP) is a 45-minute documentary format, which takes a thoughtful approach to portraying different regions and the lives of their inhabitants. It allows people to describe their creative interactions with existing resources, thereby creating a complex, distinctive and authentic portrait of their respective environments, avoiding all clichés.
AUFGETISCHT is interested in the little sensations of everyday life and examines them with a sensitive curiosity. Anything that happens can only happen here, in this particular place, and through this, identities are formed. The heartbeat of each region manifests itself in the work of its craftspeople, the creations of its artists, and in the produce that on the plates of its chefs.
Every person is unique and so is every landscape. Being able to discover and relate this is part of AUFGETISCHT.
The stories told are always personal yet representative of a region’s character, the script of each episode follows the course of a day – morning, midday, evening and night – which gives the format a fixed frame. While mealtimes, both lunch and dinner, are an integral part of each episode, they are interwoven in a way that allows the stories to unfold.
