Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin

Director: Matthew Gandy

Executive producers: Matthew Gandy and Sandra Jasper

(UK/Germany, 72 mins) (2017)

This prize-winning documentary tells the post-war history of Berlin through its plants. The changing spontaneous vegetation of Berlin serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geo-political division, and the newest phase of urban transformation. The encounters with urban nature are set to a compelling acoustic atmosphere, along with diverse electronic music from the city.

The screening will take place at Zeitgeist Multidisciplinary Arts Center (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70113), which is about a +/- 20 minute walk.

There will be a Q&A and a short reception after the screening.
