A documentary about the turnaround of a city from an economic crisis till recovery.
Berlin is hot and happening. It’s globally considered as “the place to be”. Housing in Berlin is relatively cheap compared to other European capitals and investors are starting to see the potential as well. Investments in real estate are flourishing. (Private) investors are putting their money into ‘the save haven of real estate’ while the banking system maintains in crisis. This is creating a conflict with the original residents. Rents are rising rapidly and neighborhoods are changing drastically.
Over a period of 4 years, the author of this documentary interviewed and accompanied real estate agents and investors during their daily routine and filmed tenants struggling to cope with the situation. He provides the audience with the opportunity to experience the turnaround of a whole city virtually at first hand (and in real time).
