I did not grew up in this city. My his­tory with Ber­lin just star­ted a couple of years ago but of course I feel the cul­tural her­it­age of all the places I hang out now in 2012. I wanna know how it felt to live here back in days. I wanna know what my Ber­lin friends talk about when they talk about grow­ing up in 80s & 90s Pren­zlauer Berg. How did it feel when my dad hung out in old Lini­en­str. under­ground Jazzclubs? I wanna know because this his­tory is what my Ber­lin is based on.

Now I found this amaz­ing doc­u­ment­ary by Petra Tschört­ner († 2012) about Ber­lin Pren­zlauer Berg in 1990. With much love to simple details she shows the every­day life in the Eber­swalder Str. area in the last days before the mon­et­ary union. I think you will recog­nize a lot of places like Prater or Kastan­i­en­allee but much more you will hear some great state­ments which show the mind­set of the most dif­fer­ent people in the Kiez.

For me this doc­u­ment­ary is some­thing I’d like our Find­ing­Ber­lin pro­ject to be in the future. A con­tem­por­ary doc­u­ment about a dis­tinct moment in time.
