TOP DOWN MEMORY
Based on historical events surrounding the Berlin City Palace (Humboldt Forum), the work raises questions on the manipulation of history. Starting from the confusion about the proclamation of a socialist republic by Karl Liebknecht on the balcony of Portal IV on November 9, 1918, the film examines other events that are related to political and social upheavals and questions about authenticity, construction and manipulation. Who is writing our history? How do we deal with our past? How does collective memory work? The work hinges on the architectural manifestation of hierarchies and power politics in the balcony.

Adolf Haeberli has not been tidying up since his mother’s death. He likes order but it is more important to concentrate on what really matters, though: Every day he writes countless letters on his clattering typewriter among mountains of newsprint. He wages battle with his community's politbureau, it is all about his damaged house in the middle of posh St. Moritz. A portrait about one man's right to self-will in his own town, his own house – and his very own head.
