BERLIN | Yves Degryse
The makers of BERLIN meet a spirited, elderly German man. They start talking and are fascinated by his improbable life. Several conversations and weeks later, they decide to dedicate the final part of their Holocene Cycle, in which they have created various city portraits, to him. The making of Berlin is a portrait of a city, built around the extraordinary story of a Berliner who worked as an orchestral director at the Berlin Philharmonic. A man who would like nothing more than to go back in time to complete an unfinished chapter of his life.
