„Red are the foxes“ is a documentary by Jan Stefan Kolbe about three protagonists whose parents are confident communists. When they were children Anne, Peter and Gabi were member of the „Red Foxes“, a youth group of the MLPD (Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany). The notion of Marxism-Leninism already makes us aware that the party has not broken with old doctrines and leans towards a very traditional understanding of communism. While their parents worked in jobs like teacher, lawyer or medic, their ideology foresaw a factory worker career for their children. The documentary follows the different paths of the protagonists, chosen by their parents, with some of them trying to avoid the track and others positively living it. To add perspective the documentary also tells the story of some of the current Red Foxes.
