Berlin, Berlin: Spring is the second instalment in a 4-part series about Berlin that director Nehemias Colindres calls “a poetic visualization of a city’s manifesto” that started with Berlin, Berlin: Autumn.
The last few days in Berlin have been glorious and many have been declaring that ‘winter is over’ or ‘spring is sprung’ and whilst I’m all for a bit of optimism I’d also urge a little caution. Don’t pack away all your warm clothes just yet because winter might just have a little sting in the tail.
Today is officially the first day of spring by the astronomical definition but Berlin has a habit of lulling everyone into a false sense of security. After a cold and dark winter the first days of spring are such a release but winter is often lurking in the wings, waiting to be called on for an encore and one final bow, determined not to let spring have all the attention just yet.
That being said I’m sure that many of us feel the sense of rebirth that Nehemias Colindres evokes in Berlin, Berlin: Spring as the days start to get longer and indeed, ‘crisp air fills our faces with hope, a new sensation comes to life’…I say bring on Berlin, Berlin: Summer.
