I shot this video on the 1st of may in Berlin and it shows antifascist-minded youth who are planning to interfere in a neonazi demonstration without knowing where it is held.
What I am trying to show here is that antifascist movement is mostly comprised of young people who just want to do something without having clear political agenda behind it.
Alternatively, it can be seen as a temporary breakout from the individualized and normalized everyday life created by modern capitalism.
