1. MAGDEBURG SEIN (BEING MAGDEBURG)
    Directed by Mathias Max Herrmann

    „Being Magdeburg“ is a glimpse of the city of Magdeburg through the eyes of its many residents and visitors. The taxi driver who drives past her birth house as it is being demolished. The parish clerk who describes the advantages of having colorless windows in the cathedral. The mayor who is confronted with questions concerning shake ups in town planning. The ambiguous historical legacy, the great potential of a state capital, and a city with open spaces ready for occupation echoes as a personal protrait.

    Magdeburg sein" ist ein Blick auf die Stadt Magdeburg aus der Perspektive ihrer Bewohner und Besucher. Die Taxifahrerin, die an ihrem Geburtshaus vorbeifährt, das gerade abgerissen wird, der Domküster, der die Vorzüge farbloser Fenster im Dom beschreibt, der Oberbürgermeister, der mit Fragen städtebaulicher Umstrukturierung konfrontiert ist. Das ambivalente geschichtliche Erbe, die großen Potentiale als Landeshauptstadt und als Stadt mit neu zu besetzenden Freiflächen thematisiert der Film in einem persönlichen Portrait.
