Film screening and discussion
Director: Matthew Gandy / Germany/ Great Britain (2017), 70 min, OmU
The “Brache” (wasteland) is an uncultivated field. Many places in post-war Berlin used to be eyesores that later became habitats for very special flora and fauna. These “urban wastelands” were not only an ideal adventure playground for children but they were also discovered by scientists from all over the world as unique objects of research. Now, with the construction boom in the capital, they are gradually disappearing. It is high time for a visit to this precious, exciting nature in our cities.
A discussion with Dorothee Rummel (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar) will follow the screening.
The original version of the film will be shown with English subtitles. The discussion will be held in German. For further information and registration, please visit the website of the Rachel Carson Center.
The Rachel Carson Center hosts the Green Visions film series in cooperation with the Deutsches Museum, DOK.fest München and the Münchner Volkshochschule.
