Kiezstory 2 – Der blaue Streifen

A Kiezstory by Noemi Brachvogel & Encounters media workshop. Berlin 2019

On her way home, the filmmaker discovers a blue stripe in her neighborhood in Friedrichshain. She follows it and searches for its origin. It is a memorial to the former women’s prison on Barnimstrasse. “Der blaue Streifen” is a cinematic reflection on being a woman today and then and how the past meets the present in everyday life.

The Encounters media workshop is a project led by the public library Tempelhof-Schöneberg in cooperation with Mauerpark Institut e.V. and the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of Freie Universität Berlin. It is funded by “hochdrei – Changing City Libraries” of Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation).

Medienwerkstatt Encounters invites you to our Facebook Watch Party: “Kiezstories”, focusing on the topic “back to the street”, or: “which impact has Corona made in our neighbourhoods?”

2 groups set out on a search – the result are two short films which portray how places in Berlin have changed since the lockdown.

After the screening there will be an opportunity for a Q&A with the filmmakers.
