Soll das ein Vogel sein?

Im Rahmen von “Berlin bleibt! #4”

180 mins.

Even from a distance, you can recognize Kreuzberg's Mehringplatz by the towering Peace Column. On top of it stands a winged creature. The structure is part of Berlin's history. Stories fly like birds through the sky above the city. Words flutter from mouth to ear to mouth and change. Loud. Noises. Louder. What do the quiet voices of my neighbors tell? Behind the timid glances, when a person passes by, there are worlds and lives and things not yet told. Under every roof an Oof? Tell about your worries, memories, dreams. What is your story? Manja Präkels will sit at the desk, listen and collect stories.
