Berlin 1945 time-travels into the city’s most fateful year through the eyes of those, who experienced it: German people and Allied soldiers. The documentary tells the story of liberation, defeat, and reconstruction in a city transformed from a theatre of war into a field of ruins, only to then initiate the beginning of a new era. Through a tale of the victors and the vanquished, new flags were raised and old ones lowered over the heads of Berlin‘s citizens. The film is made up entirely of real imagery from Berlin in 1945 and put into chronological order, revealing the multi-layered transformation of a city and its inhabitants. 1945 was an opportunity for people from all sides of the war to start a new life in the "zero hour."
