Cycling the Frame & The Invisible Frame

Film still from THE INVISIBLE FRAME: Actress Tilda Swinton stands with her bicycle in front of the Berlin Wall.

Sun 20.08.

Two explorations of Berlin, two collaborations between the director Cynthia Beatt and actor Tilda Swinton, two adventurous bike journeys: one along the Berlin Wall (1988) and the other, 20 years later, in search of the "omissions" between former East and West Berlin that have disappeared in many places - both historical documents that take the pulse of the city, its inhabitants and history, and also a reflection on the relationship between the in and outside and the visible in the invisible.
