About the video

After spending five months in Marseille, realizing there were very few public places to sit without purchasing food or a coffee, filmmaker Laura J. Lukitsch was amazed at the number of benches and amount of public seating in Berlin.

This video profiles the benches of Annemirl Bauer Platz, a one block park near Ostkreuz train station. Shot on a Sunday morning in early November, after what appears to have been an active Saturday.


In our interview, Amrei expressed frustration around the lack of care of the park and the easy access to beer and alcohol that makes it a destination for drinking.
