FAH-DENG German Movies Series- ‘Heavenly Location (Göttliche Lage, 2014)’


Date:

26 Oct 2016

Venue:

E21-G016

Description:

Dortmund, Hörde district: The Thyssen-Krupp steelworks have long been abandoned. The Phoenix Lake was created as an attraction in the middle of the wasteland. Even while the last big factory building is being dismantled, luxurious city villas and houses are being built around the lake. They’re unaffordable for the people from the old district. Project planners hope that the old workers’ houses will fall prey to the market and are mostly thinking about how to sell their own houses. The gentrification of the neighbourhood not only seems unavoidable, it also seems to be desired. Have the city planners mishandled matters.
