STORY DESCRIPTION:

50 years after the building of the Berlin Wall the short film At the Border Crossing is a walk down an inconspicuous, busy street in the heart of Berlin. There's nothing to indicate this was once a crossing point between West and East Berlin. After 30 years a former border patrol officer rememberes his thoughts and feeling during the service at the border. The line of reasoning, details and contradictions only bring out the monstrous nature of this border even more clearly. The images of today and the interview extracts creates an impressive cinematic puzzle.
