FOOD AND FOOTAGE // The opposite of gray

Title: The Opposite of Gray (2017, 90 min)

Director: Matthias Coers

Language: German with English subtitles


Menu: Salad from the Himmelbeet garden


Fallow land, vacancy, anonymity, stagnation – not everyone living between Dortmund and Duisburg is willing to settle for that. On the contrary. More and more people are discovering opportunities to intervene in everyday urban life. A living room in the middle of the street, the neighbourhood, community gardens. Community houses and citizen initiatives emerge in the niches of the cities – independently, self-determined and together. ‘The Opposite of Gray’ shows different groups that live in practical utopias and open spaces, and fight for a solidary and ecological coexistence in an urban space.

Panel discussion with representatives of various community gardens and the director.
