Festung Europa - Shifting Peripheries

Commissioned by Lux Europae in 1992.
Shot in Berlin, a city whose borders were formed and defined by the political and historical climate of post-war Germany. This film has no narrative, it is a journey throuth the city using the 'jump-cut' and 'cinematic time' to move from the past to the present and the present to the past. Trains, airplanes and pesdestrians now move freely through what was a 'divided' city.
This film was originally projected onto a shop window in an Edinburgh street in December as part of a Lght Festival celebrating the European Summit in 1992.
