Conradt, Gerd. Die Spree: Sinfonie eines Flusses [The Spree: Symphony of a River]. Leipzig: Ma.Ja.De, 2007. HD, 86 min. https://youtu.be/UdTWCQbrYYM.

It revives and invigorates: the River Spree—the hallmark of Berlin. In his new film, Gerd Conradt shows the river in all its glorious facets—as a border, a waterway, an energy source, a watering place, a work place and habitat—without shunning its more problematic aspects. The images unfold and create a dazzling allure, to the backdrop of Karsten Gundermann’s specially composed symphony, performed by the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s a film that takes you on a unique journey along the Spree from its source to where it feeds into the Havel. (Source: Deckert Distribution)
