Breathing Still

2019, 8 mins.

Part agit-prop, part essay film, Breathing Still creates a compelling portrait of Berlin, as the right wing nationalist party the AfD wins members in Parliament for the first time. Weaving together voice-over, stills, archive and found footage, Daniels’ flaneuse, a follower of the Polish revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg, who was assassinated by the Freikorps fascists nearly a century ago, explores Berlin’s memorials to Luxemburg and the Jews who once lived there.
