Prenzlauer Berg, 1990: May 1st to July 1st

Today Prenzlauer Berg is often referred to as the place where gentrification eradicated original local life, where and yoga studios wiped out the corner stores, where foreigners (or: simply Swabians) shut down night-life. 1990, in the legal dawn of the German reunification, East-German documentary maker Petra Tschörner investigated the old Prenzlauer Berg and asked how they feel about new time coming. It’s from a time when hardly anyone spoke English, so it’s in German only.
