A film by Sophie van der Burg
Assistant David Benz
Music by Frederic Chopin

This is a film I shot in Berlin, at the old Tempelhof Airport build in 1933 by the nazi government.
Since 2008 it has been closed. The first time I saw the building (a couple of years before filming), I felt intrigued, there was an ugliness because of it’s past and in the same time a beauty, I was attracted to it. I went there to film the building and explore it, In a way I began a relationship with the building, as if it was a human being. I came there not only to explore it but to forgive the building, in the end I realized it was me I had to forgive.
