Wednesday 06.11.19 – 8pm: Fall of the Berlin Wall | 30-Year Special

Soon Berlin will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mauerfall, and Mobile Kino is excited to organise a joint screening of Cycling the Frame (1988) & The Invisible Frame (2009). Together the two documentaries offer a poetic and compelling portrait of two eras.

Cycling the Frame (1988) – 27min
The invisible Frame (2009) – 60min
(English with German Subtitles)

In 1988 Tilda Swinton and director Cynthia Beatt embarked on a filmic journey along the Berlin Wall to create the short film CYCLING THE FRAME. Riding her bicycle from the Brandenburg Gate to the suburbs, passying by lakes, fields, and checkpoints, Swinton retraced the concrete and oppressive structure encircling West Berlin, cutting through neighborhoods and buildings, seeming indestructible at the time. One year after filming, the Wall was opened and the process of reunification of Germany began.
More than 20 years later, in 2009, Beatt and Swinton reteamed and retraced their ride, but this time weaving through both sides of the fallen wall. THE INVISIBLE FRAME depicts this poetic passage and reflects on history, memory and freedom.
