A red flag goes through the streets of Berlin, in a race to the town hall. The fifteen participants hoist the flag on the balcony of the building, to everyone’s amazement. Directed at the Berlin Film School, with the participation of Holger Meins.

Two heroic traveling shots, i should call Olympic, for its construction like the passing of the torch by the athletes at the opening of the Olympics. The flame and the arrow - the red flag hanging on the balcony of City Hall by the athletes (directors, cinema students) who carried it to that institutional power structure. An intervention made true by a continuous (e)motion picture.
