The Spree – Symphony of a River / Die Spree – Sinfonie eines Flusses
It revives and invigorates: the River Spree – the hallmark of Berlin. In his new film, Gerd Conradt shows the river in all its glorious facets – as a border, a waterway, an energy source, a watering place, a work place and habitat – without shunning its more problematic aspects. The images unfold and create a dazzling allure, to the backdrop of Karsten Gundermann’s specially composed symphony, performed by the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s a film which will enchant you as it takes you on a unique journey along the Spree from its source to where it feeds into the Havel.
