UK Premiere
Dorothea Carl I Claudia Reiche | | 12 mins

In the course of urban gentrification the demolition of buildings provides numerous spectacles of precise destruction. Passers-by gather and watch. Collective protest is rare. Instead, there is either admiration for the unbelievable power of the demolition machinery or fascinated dismay. This experimental film examines the zone of uncertainty that exists between the spectacular and the (hidden) structural elements of capitalism.
