Heart of Berlin
A doc-fiction-hybrid web series.
Alexandra visits Berlin as part of her world trip. She has been in all the huge cities around the world and found out that
Every metropolis has a HEART.
That ONE certain place (district, square, park, hill...) in each big city which the most people asked (inhabitants and visitors) would intuitively call the 'HEART' of that city. Not the geographical or geometrical or economical center, not a main transport hub, or historic city hall... 'HEART' much more in the sense of 'origin of emotions' instead of 'blood pump'.
So she comes to Berlin and askes the people what she has asked in many cities before:
'What is the Heart of Berlin?'
But the people respond very differently than in other cities. They point out totally different places, some people name more than one and some people simply can't answer the question! Berlin seems special! Are there really more than one heart in the city? Or doesn't Berlin have a heart at all??
Berlin doesn't have ONE HEART!?
To get to the bottom of this question she decides to stay in Berlin, live and work here, ask every one she meets, become part of the city... until she finds an answer. She visits all the the wild, crazy, wonderful places - meets all the communities - cultural events... and soon discovers her own talents, hopes, dreams... much more than she'd ever expected from one single stage of her world trip!
She realizes that her quest for the Heart of Berlin may actually become an expedition to the hidden places inside herself.
This is the beginning of her
Diary of a
never-ending Berlin trip
