„It is my intention to present – through the medium of photography – intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.“
– Ansel Adams
The details about the success of this project
These two film-projects are dealing with the former division of Germany into the eastern and western part.
Filmmaker and visual artist Burkhard von Harder has enlisted the aid of a helicopter and pilot to follow the precise course of the former dividing line. Starting and ending at Schönefeld airport, this real time film document shows the „Scar“ still in the process of healing. The attempt to find the „path“ is akin to the attempt to recall permanently the past as part of the struggle of contemporary German society to comprehend its history.
The land itself carries invisible traces of what has been written on the ground. It is the retracing of the trace that is the intent of this film. By doing so, Burkhard von Harder seeks to create a meditation on the past and perform an act of cinematic healing.
