Inspired by the groundbreaking success of her superhero remake Flederausmann Rises (Batman Rises), film director Gordon takes on today’s hottest topic – the ubiquitous political correctness that threatens every free expression of life like a guillotine. The appropriate basis for a horrifying vision of a consistent virtue terror system is conveniently provided by George Orwell’s 1984: An insecure hero who fights against punctuation and speech prohibitions, against surveillance, newspeak, and thought police. If only the damned zeitgeist didn’t exist, all these marginalised party-poopers whose ideas have now reached Gordon’s film set and inexorably brand the foreheads of even the strongest heroes. Nora Abdel-Maksoud, the funniest among all politically correct author-directors, was voted Young Director of the Year for her film and theater satire The Making-of. With The Sequel, she dares to create a sequel, defying all good advice.
