In 1988 director Cynthia Beatt and Tilda Swinton embarked on a filmic journey along the Berlin Wall to create the short film CYCLING THE FRAME. On her bicycle, Swinton follows the oppressive concrete structure encircling West Berlin, cutting through neighborhoods and buildings, seemingly indestructible at the time. More than 20 years later, Beatt and Swinton reteamed and retraced their ride, but this time weaving through both sides of the fallen wall for THE INVISIBLE FRAME. Together these films offer a fascinating journey through time and bring a poetic and meditative view on one of the most important events of the 20th century.
