Berlin: Symphony of Now
Taking inspiration from the silent classic Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, Schaff has created a mesmerising cinematic journey that turns Ruttmann’s morning-to-night narrative on an all-nighter. With a live mix by Frank Wiedemann, legend of the Berlin club scene, and Alex.Do, Schaff’s film swerves from venue to venue, from high life to low life, and celebrates the vibrancy, the danger and the exhilaration that magnetises Berlin.

DIGITAL CALLIGRAFFITI is a community project which gives the chance to all social groups to freely share their messages, wishes and visions on burning issues of our society. As the closing programme of the MICROWAVE INTERNATIONAL NEW MEDIA ARTS FESTIVAL, DIGITAL CALLIGRAFFITI will be used as an open platform of solidarity, exploring the challenging question: What can Urban Media Art do to foster a respectful dialogue in the current situation in Hong Kong?
