Spanish premiere

The German word “Lage” (English: condition, position, situation) comes from Middle High German and describes a “position of lying in wait”. Something is going on. This may be “a military, police or security situation: the situation of a military group in relation to their surroundings. A comprehensive view of the threat of government bodies or the reduction of domestic security. A situation which requires the police to act, factors and circumstances for rescue services which describe damaging events and damage prevention.” (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lage)

The film Die Lage tells of the very same, when in September 2011 Pope Benedict XVI travelled to Germany as part of his plan to promote New Evangelisation, paying visits to the city of Erfurt and a site in the Eichsfeld region, both in Thuringia. The situation there is as one might expect. A few weeks later at St. Peter’s Basilica, the Pope announces his decision to declare a “Year of Faith”, to begin on 11 October 2012. “This will be a good opportunity to usher the whole Church into a time of particular reflection and rediscovery of the faith.” (Guide of the apostolic visit of Pope Benedict XVI, ed. Secretariat of the German Bishops Conference)
