On September 5, 2008, 400 people, including directors Romuald Karmakar, Volker Koepp, Rosa von Praunheim and Andres Veiel, in 80 teams fanned out all over Berlin to capture 24 hours in the life of the German capital. A team of ten editors spent ten months cutting 750 hours down to 24, and the result, 24h Berlin, will not only be broadcast on Arte and RBB and screened in the Zeughauskino but - and here's the good news for those of you not actually in Berlin - will also be viewable right here at The Auteurs - for free. Starts live on Saturday morning at 6am, Berlin-time (midnight in New York, 9pm in San Francisco, and so on) and runs straight on through to Sunday morning. As the day progresses, you'll be able to call up individual hour-long episodes; and then, later in the week, we'll also have a feature-length version, 90 minutes or so, available.
