Synopsis

Currently, Berlin is experiencing the highest growth rate of tourism in the world, a situation not everyone is happy about. Fear of gentrification, animosity towards tourists, feeling one’s very existence is endangered – the documentary WELCOME GOODBYE sets out to capture currently prevailing attitudes in society, lending an ear to advocates and adversaries of tourism alike.

No less central are the tourists themselves: in 6 episodes, WELCOME GOODBYE follows 2 Taiwanese, a Mexican, a Dutchman and several others on their escapades through the German capital.
