A workshop by Medienwerkstatt Encounters /Encounters media workshop – an initiative of the public library Tempelhof-Schöneberg. This multi-media community project places the encounter at the center of its workshops and events.

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.
