Kreuzberg is a short film by Aaron Rose shot on location in Berlin using his iPhone 4. Since the 1980s, the historically Turkish neighborhood of Kreuzberg has also been home to a population of artists, musicians and anarchists. According to Rose, the film is a tribute to Brian Eno and David Bowie, both of whom recorded in Kreuzberg in the 1970s.
The film's main characters are Fiona Geuss, an art historian who reads excerpts from Boris Groys' essay on "light luggage," and Nathan Harrington, a musician who created the film's original score. In the film, Harrington recites a poem written by Rose.
