A Street in Berlin: 1904 — 2014
Pascale Hugues embarks on a quest to learn more about the city she lives in, producing a stunning history in the process. Looking at one rather ordinary street — her own — and the people who lived there, she charts its history from 1904, through the dark days under Hitler and the humiliating aftermath of the war, to the arrival of David Bowie and Tangerine Dream, right up to the present day.
