What an amazing trip through Germany we have had. The people we met on our journey were incredible individuals, and we can’t wait to begin the editing process and start post-production. Thank you very much to all of those who allowed us to speak with them.
We look forward to sharing each episode with you starting in Spring 2011! read more
Today is a very special day: it´s the last of our trip. We begin in the freezing morning air of Potsdam, and are lucky enough to meet a lovely 80-year-old woman who happens to be taking her dog for a walk.

On a sunny morning like this, Halle is a place we could stay forever. A man with a bicycle and a woollen cap is coming towards us – it turns out he’s on his way home, to “Mutti”, his wife. We deftly talk him round to doing a quick interview, and he thoroughly enjoys, for the first time in his life, being a filmstar. read more
