About the Book
DIE NARBE/THE SCAR is a film project in two parts by Burkhard von Harder - in both cases Helicopter flights following the remnants of the former inner German divide and demarcation line 20 years after the reunification. Part I - Westberlin (West) follows the former death strip in 76 minutes, part II takes the viewer in 16 hours realtime from the Czech Border to the East Sea up North along 1378 km through four seasons in three years: a line becomes a circle that turns into a spiral. The PoD version of Part II (Von Prex bis Priwall) is invisioned as 28 volumes representing 28 years of oppression, covering 50 km each. So far 4 double volumes condense the experience.
