AFTER THE FALL
by Eric Black and Frauke Sandig
November 9, 1999: ten years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The strip where the structure once stood is now Europe's largest construction site, with 50,000 new buildings completed. The Wall is gone, but its imprint remains. Like an archaeological dig, AFTER THE FALL searches for traces of the Berlin Wall within the people who lived in its shadow. Stories of frustration, fear and dreams uncover the remains of this absurd border, excavating memories out of a collective act of forgetting.
Co-produced by Sender Freies Berlin, Saarländischer Rundfunk and ITVS
