Martin Schultz is released after 11 years of imprisonment. As a citizen of the former German Democratic Republic, he experienced the fall of the Wall from his prison cell. Martin is full of hope when he returns home, but he hardly recognizes East Berlin again. The "New Berlin" has already taken over and the "Old East Berlin" clings desperately to its last remaining traits. The eleven-year absence is like a time machine and Martin runs into one difficulty after another while finding his place in this "new" world. Adapted from Helmer’s 1999 short, meticulously researched pic combines resolutely realistic tech approach with sly humor inherent in ex-con’s poignant learning curve.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
