Berlin Recyclers

Berlin - techno, cobblestones and a lot of graffiti. Berlin Recyclers portraits the cultural, social and urban fabrics of this city by means of experimental animation. The viewer is guided to urban hideouts where little creatures dwell. These are digitally composed with collected trash and typical local products. The clatter of the limbs of these creatures interacts with the soundscapes of Berlin.

Nikki Schuster (Nikki Schuster/Fiesfilm)

Fast forward. A camera rushes across Argentina’s stone desert toward a cactus and crashes headfirst through an opening into the plant’s interior. There, a view opens up of an eerie universe. Vibrating insect wings beat, swishing against one another, then they transform into little Sputniks with tender antennas, rushing around, and we dive into one of their hollow bodies.

Nikki Schuster (Nikki Schuster/Fiesfilm)
Austria, Germany, 2015, 6'33''

A microscopic view submerges directly into slender plastic pipes and dusty cracks in walls in vacated buildings in Spain, Bolivia, Mexico, Bosnia, Croatia, and Germany. Glistening light alternates with the black of concealed corners in the debris- and trash-filled rooms.
