Berlin-Tempelhof airport: built by the Nazis, defended as a free space against commercial interests after it was shut down, turned into one of the biggest emergency shelters in Berlin during the refugee crisis. It’s the starting point of a few loosely connected stories, narrated from off-screen by the director as a script-reading that automatically pushes its way into the images in the viewer’s head. An associative contemplation of the history of present-day Germany.
