Brussels in 180sec

Symbol of power, retreat, mysterious parallel world – what is the Brussels Palace of Justice? Tourists, lawyers, senior citizens and students meet in a glass lift. Not all are going in the same direction, but all meet here, stand facing one another and sometimes speak to one another.

In the scanty space of a lift, people mix, there is monologue and dialogue. The director Marie Pynthe has captured them on film for “180 Seconds Brussels”.

Berlin in 180sec

On his finger Ramin Soleymani wears a small magnet. And this, he says, already makes him a cyborg. For “180 Seconds Berlin”, Theresa Authaler and Florian Falzeder accompany him in the S-Bahn across Berlin – from Alex to Potsdamer Platz – in his search for the invisible world of electromagnetism. Will he find it?

I’m very lucky that Erlangen and the surrounding areas are so utterly bike friendly that even a beginner (Anfänger) can get around safely. Now I am indeed no expert when it comes to biking BUT a bike is my main form of transport here in Germany and may be yours too, it’s worth doing some research, particularly if like me you hadn’t ridden a bike since childhood (and weren’t much good then either).
