Kiezstory 1 – Mein Kiez Friedenau

A Kiezstory by Lou Rodrian & Encounters media workshop. Berlin 2019

Lou lives in Friedenau, has her favorite places and everyday life in her“Kiez”/neighborhood. On her way to school, she walks past a group of homeless men every day. One day she decides to speak to the group and get to know the men. The film wants to find out how they spend their days, what they see and think and how someone feels without a home in this neighborhood.
