24h Berlin portrays a day in the life of one of the most loved European cities, 20 years after the Wall came down. One whole day in the life of a city and its inhabitants experienced and shot, by professionals and amateurs, planned and spontaneous. One year later broadcast on TV – again for 24 hours, without interruption, in conjunction with a website, events and a digital archive for the future: on September 5th 2009 the world watches Berlin going about its daily life.

24h Berlin is a unique concept. Bringing together 70 of the country’s most talented directors on one day in one city: among them established artists like Romuald Karmakar, Volker Koepp, Rosa von Praunheim, Andres Veiel and Thomas Heise as well as talented newcomers. Every single one of them contributing his or her very own approach, style and point of view. Each of them working in the same framework to create a kaleidoscopic, living, mega-portrait of a unique time in a unique place.
