My German is next to non-existent (it is German, right?) but the term "panoramic camera" is used several times. And, he is clearly describing the motion of a swinglens camera (such as a Noblex) during the interview. The early images (such as the nuns) are a dead giveaway of this type of machine, too.

Are the prints large? Yes. But we really can't see the quality of them in a web video, now can we? ;)
They're probably fine, though - after all, he's using TMY ... :D (kidding)
Yes, at the beginning, where he's jumping around in front of the camera, it's a swing lens camera.
here's the english version of the same film
very interesting outlook on life and his work
Xpan and Widelux
The camera at the start is a Widelux. It is shown on his website.
The camera in question IS an Xpan with a 30mm lens. The knob on top is the tightening screw that fits the hot shoe. Look here to see it...
