Was machst Du hier? by Mirelle Borra

The question of cultural identity runs throughout the video ‘Was machst Du hier?’. Moving images of iconic landmarks of Berlin are juxtaposed with audio of an interview; each individually convey about migration, belonging, tourism, and the formation of Europe. Assorted sections of the video were shot at Mauerpark, the Reichstag Dome (parliament), Brandenburg Gate, and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, respectively.

The interview consist of two Southern Europeans who recently moved to Berlin and were obligated to do a German integration course.
