Lichtenberg film Raven West Films behind the scenes


Through the eyes and ears of an old abandoned apartment block in the centre of Berlin, ‘Lichtenberg’ tells stories from five different periods of recent Berlin History.

A Weimar murder,  a Nazi meeting, an East German family’s escape, the arrival of two 90’s squatters and finally, a woman who hopes to host a young Syrian refugee in her flat. Collectively the stories, framed against the reality of an ever-changing, ever-gentrifying Berlin, asks the viewer to consider that history belongs to these old buildings.
