Tempelhof airport

This clip was made from shots at Tempelhof airport. Or what used to be. The result of a referendum in 2008 which asked Berliners on the future of the airport showed a divide in opinion between East and West, as well as a low turnout of 21.7%. One Shot, a short film by Dietrich Brüggemann, also uses the runway of Tempelhof, an airport once iconic symbol of Berlin Airlift, with dialogs on integration.
