Faith, Hope and Charity archive"And in the paper it talked about the misery of the people and the Minister said the state is a welfare state and that was the whole trouble. So I said to the state: ‘Listen, I’m a citizen too, but the state didn’t answer’." Elisabeth is a fighter: an optimistic saleswoman in pre-war Europe. When she is fined for selling corsets without a valid permit, her debts mount. Drowning in bureaucracy, Elisabeth attempts to sell her last asset- her corpse. Meeting a charitable person, the offer of stability and love rebuilds Elisabeth’s faith. But the unstoppable machinery of the state advances... Banned by the Nazi regime in 1933, Faith, Hope and Charity is a powerful and critical portrait of a population driven to desperate and absurd ends, which asks enduring questions about society, civil rights and the welfare state.
