Asmara – Sleeping Beauty

Series of Documentaries for an exibition about architecture in Eritrea.

Made with the Institute of Architectual Theory at the University of Innsbruck. This series of short documentaries will be used at an exibition centring on the architecture in Asmara/Eritrea. We shot everything in September 2014 with very little technical equipment and always under the survailance of the governtment. The Trip there was mindblowing. We were invited to see otherwise hidden archives, houses, transport infrastructure and other places. Sometimes we almost forgot that we are in one of the poorest countries in the world with almost no freedom for the people.
