Do Mixers go to Heaven?
A film about sustainability
Carmen is from Switzerland and a student in the exotic city of Thuringia. After her brand-new mixer broke down, she set off to a flea market where she discovered the legendary “RG 28“, an orange-colored mixer that was produced in the GDR.
Carmen embarks on a journey to the roots of the “RG 28” and meets former employees of the (meanwhile shut down) electrical equipment factory, happy owners of the mixer, but also sociologists, collectors of everyday items and art professors. These encounters and conversations lead Carmen to the question whether it is ethically justifiable to deny our commodities what we wish for ourselves: a long life.
