About this Piece
In this short experimental film, acclaimed German director, writer and producer Tom Tykwer takes a revelatory deep dive into a single image of a typical Berlin sidewalk, exploring the multifarious traces, backgrounds, and interconnections of human labor and industrial production, necessary for the manufacture of the objects and commodities that shape our everyday surroundings.
