Berlin's Hidden Charm Posted on 12/5/2017 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching Share this article: A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film: This episode of CNNGo shines a light on Berlin as an incubator for creative professionals: architects, chefs, actors and musicians. We meet chef Tim Raue, who sees Berlin slowly climbing up the ranks in gastronomy. And we meet orchestral drummer Christina Gehringer, who tells us there are so many concert halls in Berlin, you can see a different show every night of the week. Artists are flocking to Berlin. But why? And why now? Architect Lars Krueckenberg explains it best: “We have a lot of wounds but a lot of possibility in this city. That’s why Berlin is great for creative people: you can fill in gaps while not being in a vacuum. Everything inspires you.” Courtesy CNN About David Conover: David Conover, a long-term partner of O.A.T. and Grand Circle, is an award-winning filmmaker and conservationist whose work has appeared on Discovery Channel, PBS, and National Geographic Explorer.
