Juliane Henrich’s film, “From the West,” becomes the crossing of a world that lies just beneath the images of our world today. A detached and distant voice recalls the story of a country, Germany, torn apart by two opposite political systems. While the camera moves tirelessly on the surfaces of nowadays’s Germany. The voice digs deep in the not-so-distant past. “From the West” revolves around memory connected to grayish post-war architecture in Western German cities while analyzing the question of what „The West” must have meant while the country was divided.
