A Vision of Resistance


In a 13-minute navigation, Nestler takes us downstream the Rhine River. The opportunity of cheap water transport kept prices of raw material down and made the Rhine one of the most important arteries of industrial transport in the world.

Our take

On the legendary river Rhine, the labor of boatmen and the industrial shore are watched over by tourists. At once a poet, anthropologist and historian, Peter Nestler matter of factly captures the confluence of labor and leisure at one of the great arteries of Germany’s national identity.
