Mauerpark was once the “death strip” between barriers dividing a city and a nation. The Berlin Wall used to separate people, but now the park unites them.
Punks chill next to mothers with children. Musicians and artists frolic. Players run the gauntlet on the basketball courts. Here, a unique mixture of madness and relaxation blends together in a fantastic portrayal of Berlin life.
Mauerpark captures a summer in the city, showing the complexity of the park's cosmos. Feel the freedom that prevails there. The film is a vignette of Berlin’s subculture with its eccentric, creative and talented outsiders. A fantastic contemporary documentary that uncovers the unique world inside a much loved German landmark.
