Unlike U DVD – Trainwriting in Berlin
Thursday, February 10th, 2011
Unlike U is a great documentary about Berlin’s trainwriting scene – be sure to check it out!
UNLIKE U melts into a scene, which for outsiders, is hard to comprehend. The world of trainwriters, those spray paint artists who specialize in painting trams and underground trains. The film makers have worked on this documentation for over 7 years and have thus established a good relationship in the scene, which can be decribed as a ‘closed party’. The intensity with which these artists live their passion is fascinating, but the film also shows the radical determination which one needs to poses in order to lead this lifestyle. Extremely undercover. Extremely criminal. Extremely forbidden.
