Deine Strasse

Your Street
A featureless street on an industrial estate in Bonn – desolate, unfinished and inconspicuous. The street bears the name of a child. It is meant to commemorate the racially motivated terrorist attack that this child did not survive. A public memorial, consigned to no man’s land. A film against collective amnesia.
