An experimental documentary about a visit from a Jewish-American videomaker to her close friend, a German dancer living on The Reeperbahn — the main drag of Hamburg’s “St. Pauli” red-light district.  This short video raises questions about contemporary identity, control over representation and the weight of recent European history on contemporary young adults.  Shot and edited in a poetic, cinema vérité style on digital video.

2002, 14 min.

music:  Down River, Out of Round Records
