On Thursday 12 March 2020 at 6.45pm, the Cambridge Natural History Society presents “Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin” as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.

Created by the project’s PI Matthew Gandy and former post-doc Sandra Jasper (co-author and executive producer), the film offers a vision of the “Brachen” of Berlin, “spaces of spontaneous nature, a field for pioneers, holding the promise of happiness”. The changing vegetation of Berlin serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geo-political division, and the newest phase of urban transformation.

Matthew Gandy will be present for a Q&A session after the screening.

Free and open for all, no booking required.

Location: Large Lecture Theatre, Department of Geography, Downing Place, Cambridge CB2 3EN
