Urban Lab Films present one of the first UK screenings of Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin by Matthew Gandy. This prize-winning documentary tells the post-war history of Berlin through its plants, as we encounter an extraordinary variety of spontaneous vegetation from all over the world that has sprouted along railway lines, on street corners, and in the distinctive Brachen of Berlin. The changing vegetation serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geopolitical division, and the newest phase of urban transformation.
Following the screening Matthew Gandy (Writer/Director) and Sandra Jasper (Executive Producer/Co-Writer) will be joined for a Q&A by Stephen Barber (Research Professor in Art History, Kingston University), chaired by Peg Rawes (Professor of Architecture and Philosophy, Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL).
The screening is in partnership with ERC Rethinking Urban Nature and Bertha DocHouse.
Tickets to the screening are FREE and will be made available from 6pm on Thursday 15 February. To book a ticket please follow the Book Tickets tab on this page that will take you to an Eventbrite page.
