KITCHENER-BERLIN DOUBLE VISION PROGRAMS
In Phil Hoffman's 1990 film Kitchener-Berlin, he travels between these two cities recalling their histories (Kitchener was known as Berlin until World War I) and creating a poetic document of memory, ruin, and reconstruction. Using this film as a starting point, these two programs collect together new and old works that investigate cities and place both near and far. Memories of travel, migration, and time passing mix in these documentary and experimental compositions to explore place both as an insider and as an outsider.

Double Vision is organized by The Images Festival (Toronto) and the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC). These programs are a part of a touring project that is taking place in three pairs of partner cities in Canada and Europe: Montr�al and Paris, London, Ontario and London, UK and Berlin, Germany and Kitchener, Ontario.. Both of these shorts programs were presented in Berlin Germany at the Kino Arsenal in November of 2007.
