A visit from a Jewish-American videomaker to her close friend, a German dancer living on The Reeperbahn — the main drag of Hamburg’s “St. Pauli” red-light district: This experimental documentary raises questions about contemporary identity, control over representation and the weight of recent European history on young adults today. Shot and edited in a poetic, cinema verite style with digital video.
music: “Sharken” by Down River, Out of Round Records
