Geographical Didacticism and the X-Films of New Berlin
This chapter looks at how two German domestic and international successes by the fledgling New Berlin film production company X-Filme, bound up in the new funding policies of Filmboard Berlin-Brandenburg, created new urban cinematic geographies for the postwall city and contributed to the project of East-West integration and reconciliation at home and among spectators abroad. Focusing on Tom Tykwer’s Lola rennt and Wolfgang Becker’s Good Bye, Lenin!, this section studies the degrees of conspicuousness of the city and the utility of the two directors’ varying strategies for unifying spectators across geographical and cultural divides.
