Dir. Matthew Gandy | 2017 | U | 1h 12

Screening followed by Q&A with director, Matthew Gandy.

An exploration of the urban ecologies and cultural significance of brownfield sites in Berlin. The film takes us from the Trümmerlandschaften and their unique ecologies to the abandoned roofs of the Friedrichshagen Waterworks on the edge of the city. Encountering an extraordinary variety of spontaneous vegetation from all over the world that has sprouted along railway lines, street corners, and in the distinctive Brachen of Berlin.

“But what is an urban landscape anyway? Even a cracked pavement or neglected parking lot, with its own ecological dynamics, can serve as a kind of small-scale landscape beloved of urban botanical excursions.”
