There are 32 places in America named Berlin. We are collecting true stories about these Berlins in the form of video, text and images. The idea is to create a space for collaborative storytelling, in which participants can share their stories as well as contribute perspective to the stories of others. Our plan is to pick your 12 most interesting stories and make an episodic feature film!
In the mean time, we hope this website becomes an inspiring and fascinating territory for personal narrative. Along the way we’ll be announcing new ways to get involved, as well as sharing stories from our friends and project partners in Berlin, Germany. It’s a chance for Americans and Germans to learn about one another in a new way.
