Am Siel

Directed by Peter Nestler
West Germany, 1962
Documentary, Short


In his first documentary, Nestler uses a rather unconventional way of telling the story of a small Northern German seaside village. The protagonist and narrator is an old, worn-out dike sluice, expressing its very own nostalgic views of the people living in the village.
