Berlin is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Mauerfall, and Mobile Kino is excited to organise a special screening of The Invisible Frame (2009).
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, passing by lakes, fields, and checkpoints, Swinton retraced the concrete and oppressive structure encircling West Berlin, cutting through neighbourhoods 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.
