Am Siel / By the Dike Sluice

  • Germany
Audio Tracks 

In his first documentary, Nestler uses a rather unconventional way of telling the story of a small Northern German seaside village. The protagonist and narrator is an old, worn-out dike sluice, expressing its very own nostalgic views of the people living in the village, situated at the other end of its floodgate.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new programme.
