In 1957 the first International Construction Exhibition after the war took place in Berlin. At the „Interbau'57" 64 world famous architects of the classical modernism came together to realise their vision of a „city of tomorrow". Under them visionists like Le Corbusier, Oskar Niemeyer, Walter Gropius and Arne Jacobsen. They did not only want to provide new flats for the bombed out residents. With their plan of a green city-landscape they wanted to create a peaceful and democratic society.
The documentary shows the beginning and the history of the Hansaviertel. It is dedicated to the people who live there today and asks for the success of an international praised role model for town construction. But can you find the high ideological requirements of progress, democracy and freedom in the heads of the people who live there today?
We ask architects of the Interbau'57 like the 99 years old Oskar Niemeyer and other time-wittnesses of the 50's as well as young residents of the Hansaviertel. The documentary shows the Hansaviertel as an exciting and vital community in the heart of Berlin. A DVD of this documentary (97minutes, english subtitles) is available here: www.stadtvonmorgen.de
