Bye Bye Berlin
“Between the dismantling of the wheel and the erection of the cross, Berlin died for me”. That’s what Italian filmmaker Antonio Nábolo said. He was referring to the dismantling of the robber wheel in front of the Volksbühne, at the end of Frank Castorf’s directorship, and the erection of the cross on the dome of the Humboldt Forum. It is done: after 1066 days, almost three years, Berlin’s agony has ended. “Bye Bye Berlin” by Antonio Nábolo and Eberhard Spreng documents the dying process, a film-within-a-film adventure, a journey through the labyrinth of Berlin’s present and history.
