Directed by Alice Agneskirchner

Who does nature belong to? The animals? Mankind? Or simply just itself? The question is more complex than it might seem at first. The film examines this question, and while searching for an answer reaches the basics of our society – and, in the end, discovers deeper truths about our roots as hunters and gatherers.

We accompany hunters, forest rangers, gamekeepers and other forest workers into a fascinating microcosmos right in the heart of our western civilization. In the Bavarian Alps, we enter a world which doesn’t seem to fit in with our times. Chamois, roaring stags, wolves – in addition to mankind, they are all part of nature and share their natural habitat with us. Who determines how we coexist? Who decides how many of them may be hunted? Do they even need to be hunted? What would happen if the 1.2 million deer and 600.000 wild boar which are shot each year in Germany were allowed to propagate freely in the forests?

Concept by Alice Agneskirchner

Apartment in Berlin is a project about young Israelis in Berlin, who encounter the dark past in this vibrant metropolis. Through the story of a Jewish famlily from Berlin, they confront themselves both with their own and the German-Jewish past. With the help of old records and vivid memories of the descendants, the former apartment of the Adler family has been rearranged and might now look just like it did shortly before the Adlers were deported to Auschwitz.

The apartment serves as an exhibition and installation open to the public. The accompanying film documents the active process of remembering and the search for the lost artefacts in today's world turns into a journey through time - right into the then Jewish life of Berlin.

Alice Agneskirchner was granted the Gerd-Ruge-Stipend for the concept she wrote for Apartment in Berlin in 2010.
