The Wollersheimer

The villagers of Wollersheim dream of a grocery store – a small one, one of those you no longer find today because they don’t make much money: a village shop.

The village of 660 is not a lucrative location for entrepreneurs – so the Wollersheimer take matters into their own hands. They amass support and funds for their cooperative project and search for suppliers and a site for the shop. More than two years pass – and a lot changes. Neighbours become business partners and in the end, the “Wollersheim Village Shop” opens.

THE WOLLERSHEIMER is a documentary spanning three years of observation – a Heimatfilm in four episodes.
