During a longer-than-anticipated stint in Berlin, I collected impressions as I rediscovered my native town in a photo album titled “The Colours of Berlin”. This photo was taken just as the sun came out after a rainy morning, outside Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo, an independent art-house video rental shop and bar at Reichenberger Straße 133 in Berlin-Kreuzberg. As the gentrification of Berlin advances inexorably, it’s reassuring to see that some of those places that gave Berlin its original charme continue to exist.
You can visit Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo on Facebook – or pop over if you’re in the neighbourhood to have a coffee or a drink.
