For the past 15 years of global upheaval, while Europe faces economic and financial crises, Angela Merkel has become an esteemed leader in an era of populism, successfully strengthening Germany’s stability and prosperity. This documentary follows Merkel’s political rise from a young scientist from East Germany, all the way to the Chancellor’s office. The Unexpected is a fascinating portrait, rich with archival footage and interviews, offering a rare opportunity to learn a thing or two about Merkel’s understated power, the way in which she balances her steps between conflicting forces and her ability to navigate between those forces to achieve her goals.
