Pinkafeld is a small town in Austria where the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ) has absolute majority in the town council. Pinkafeld is also the hometown of far-right politician Norbert Hofer from the Freedom Party (FPÖ)… and 70% of voters in this “red” community voted for him in the Austrian presidential election. Filmmaker Elke Groen examines the growing polarization of society and the completely blurred ideological lines revealed by people’s voting habits. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH is an attempt to understand.
