    • Synopsis
    • Between Berlin's past and a dystopian future, Juri Padel's pulsating trip finds cinematic access to the fourth dimension. An inexplicable rift runs through Berlin, seemingly splitting the city in two. When the artificial intelligence 'Billie' disappears between these worlds, her friend Marion, with the help of former activist and hacker Blue, tries to follow her digital trail, which gets lost somewhere in the rift. But the closer they get to Billie, the deeper they penetrate into the marginal deviation of reality. The rift not only fragments the film's narrative, but also takes us viewers into a world in which the boundaries between reality and virtual manipulation have been lost in the digital background noise. Junk Space Berlin, partly AI-based, is "mindfuck at it's best". Suggestive and full of subversive energy. Trainspotting meets Shakespeare in a Berlin whose division only exists in people's minds and is therefore all the more present.
