White Christmas
DE 1968

White Christmas also combines American popular culture – easy listening, to be exact – with acid criticism of the Vietnam War. The aim of this short agitprop film – addressed in fact, to the German rather than the American public – was to contrast bourgeois prosperity and comfort with the distant war. Like pretty much all ‘Love Generation’ criticism, the film doesn’t target the USA in particular but the entire capitalist system.
