This video is a response to Kobland’s experiences as a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) fellow in West Berlin. A journalistic collection of impressions of a haunted place, the tape evokes the landscape of past and present Germany through still images and archival film clips. Inter-cutting these images with footage shot on the plane (whether Kobland is leaving Germany or just arriving is impossible to say), Berlin: Tourist Journal constructs a portrait of this divided city through the eyes of an outsider.
