''Schwarzfahrer'' is a 1994 [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]]-winning German ten-minute short, directed by Pepe Danquart. It promotes racial tolerance.

The German term "Schwarzfahrer" means "fare dodger", but with can be read literally (with some license) as "black passenger" (''black'' used here in the sense of ''illegal''). The title therefore is a pun, as it plays in a tram in Berlin.

!!This short shows examples of:

* AnswerCut: Cue the punk entering the tram.
* ApatheticCitizens: None of the passengers (save the Turkish teenager) speak out against her ravings or defend the African man. [[DirtyCoward They opt to ignore her instead]]. To their credit, they also refuse to pipe up when she gets kicked off the bus at the end despite seeing her ticket get eaten.
* CassandraTruth: When the old lady tells the conductor the black man ate her ticket, she does so in such a virulently racist way NO conductor would even begin to believe her.
* CryingWolf: The old lady at the end, when trying to explain to the conductor that the black guy ate her tickets.
* DeathByRacism: Not death, but the old lady's removal from the train wouldn't have happened if she hadn't spent the last ten minutes spewing unprovoked racism at the black man.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: It's a black and white movie. [[RuleOfSymbolism Get it]]?
* EatTheEvidence: Not really ''evidence'', but the principle is the same.
* ForTheEvulz: Not that the old lady had any specified reason to affront the black guy.
* [[KickTheSonOfABitch Kick the Bitch]]: Yeah, it did feel really good when the old hag was taken care of in the end.
* ManipulativeBastard: The old lady tries to be one. Nobody listens, and the only one who openly supports her is probably as old as her.
* RacistGrandma: The old lady. Resultant from ScrewPolitenessImASenior
* RefugeInAudacity: Rather brilliantly done - of course no one is going to believe the racist lady when she says the black guy ate her ticket.
* SceneryPorn: Some. Many pics of Berlin's inner city are shown, like outside the tram windows.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Again, the lady.
* StealthPun: The title.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Subverted. But the attitude and the age of the old lady in 1994 might fit. And the old man's probably too.
