Duisburg-Bruckhausen is the site of the last German rail rolling mill, which is closing down. After more than a hundred years of production, the factory closure is another element in the Ruhr valley’s crumbling industrial heritage. People face social decline again, political decision-makers are once more powerless, and another company has made a decision. FLÜSSE TÄLER BERGE portrays these politico-economic forces in society as it narrates the history of the region: The façades of the city and the rail tracks lining the countryside also reflect the hierarchical situation of an entire century.

In the presence of Marco Kugel and Bastian Epple (Film Editing).
