Inside The Place – Remix-Potsdamer Platz

35mm, 9min, b/w, Dolby Stereo, Germany 1997

Remix of the full-length film “Der Platz (The Place)”, about the Potsdamer Platz. Once again Schueppel shows the building site as a resurrected body, but this time the camera gets closer and bares the soul of the square. Over the original soundtrack of FM Einheit is the text “On the Terrace at the Pole”, a poem about the Potsdamer Platz by the German expressionist poet Paul Zech from 1913.
