Hochbrücke Brunsbüttel

A Film by Karsten Wiesel

Synopsis

One of Germany’s longest bridges spans the Kiel Canal near Brunsbüttel at a height of 40 metres. As one approaches the structure, the more impressive its visual and acoustic appearance becomes. For the workmen and engineers of the technical service crew, the bridge is an object to be examined. For this movie, the bridge becomes actor,
resonating body and metaphor.
