Edward Berger told DW that the topic is still important more than a century after the war, and that the film is disturbingly current due to rising populism and nationalism. Director Barger begun working on the film three years ago, and he was uneased due to rising political issues in Europe and the world.

“There was Brexit in the UK, we had a right-wing government in Hungary, and a rising far right in France and Germany and many countries around Europe,” he said. “Suddenly, institutions that brought us peace for 70 years, like the EU, were being questioned.”
