Five greatest cities in the world!
Five cities in five nights. Darkness creates intimacy. Light concentrates the view. From Thessaloniki in the southeast through Novi Sad, Linz, Essen, to Liverpool in the northwest, the journey takes us diagonally all the way through Europe.
The film documents the project Botschaft Europa: In teams of two we explored five selected European cities at night. Residents of the cities equipped with headlamps lead us to special places of their choice. Unknown places became familiar for strangers. And locals re-discovered their well known quarters.
Doc Alliance is a creative partnership of 7 key European documentary film festivals. Our aim is to advance the documentary genre, support its diversity and promote quality creative documentary films.
