Kreuzberg, 1979

December 16th, 2011

This footage, shot by┬áIngeborg Euler, gives a somewhat spooky glimpse of the Berlin borough of Kreuzberg in 1979, and was originally broadcast on 3sat. Kreuzberg — then part of West Berlin — was surrounded on three sides by East Berlin, and the film gives a sense of the enclave-like nature of Kreuzberg life at the time, including shots of the river and the Oberbaumbr├╝cke — at that time part of the Berlin Wall. The music is by Brian Eno, from Ambient 4.
