People cast long shadows as they walk across a lawn with the outline in the shape of a heart, opposite the Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom) on a sunny autumn day in Berlin, Nov. 14.
Part I: Called the ugliest building in Berlin, the Palast der Republik is one of the last remaining relics of the former GDR in the heart of the city. But after the Berlin and German governments voted to tear the building down, a number of Berliners rose up to save the Palast. Brokedown Palast not only documents this political debate but is a meditation on the building, it's city and the residual emotions and sentiments over this fading chapter in modern German history.
