After The Fall
After the Fall is a documentary about the almost total disappearance of an edifice that was once 160 kilometres long. Today, some ten years after the fall of the wall in 1989, virtually nothing remains of the structure that once surrounded West Berlin. Meanwhile, some 50,000 new buildings have been erected in the capital. The total eradication of the wall is described here by different people and from different points of view. Interviewees include an American historian, a church minister in Berlin and a Bavarian demolition expert. The common tenor of their views is that the wall and its traces were eradicated too quickly with the intention of forgetting the past.
