Brand-new video celebrating 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall

Being born a German comes with a strange heritage. This is the country that sent many people through hell and back, and eventually went through hell themselves. My father was amongst it, so wherever I go in my life this memory is always there. But there are other, good memories as well. 9/11 for example. No, not that one, I am talking about Germany's 9/11. In Germany you put the day before the month, so it's 9 November - today. Until exactly 25 years ago my country had been divided by a wall, separating towns, villages, communities, families and lovers. It went through Berlin, Germany's very heart, and the rest of the nation like an open scar. On 9 November 1989 the people in East Germany managed to open this wall through a peaceful revolution. The video for Berlin Wall celebrates that day 25 years ago. And it celebrates change wherever it occurs. Growing up I thought the Wall would be there forever. I was wrong. Things change. Or rather, people change things. And despite what we may feel, separation is not forever. The video is about that. And some people get laughed at for holding onto whacky ideas or lifelong dreams, yet they persist in the face of ridicule, because they believe in something. They also move walls, and this video is for them too. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/EU7BC2EU7C0
