On this side of the track, [31:20 min], 2020, film stills, Roma and Romnja talk about living in Dortmund’s northern city. They tell of their traditions and of their experiences with racist prejudice and discrimination. The camera follows their perspectives, showing the facades and peering behind them. In which ways do the spatial structure of the district, the architecture and individual living influence each other? How do the residents furnish themselves in their neighbourhood? How do they want it? And do they finally succeed in shaping their environment according to their own needs?
