B 224

North American Premiere

The B 224 is one of the major highways leading through the Ruhr area, one of Germany’s most industrial and most densely populated regions. It runs south and north again connecting Gladbeck, Bottrop, Essen, Wuppertal and Solingen. B224 is a purely observation film, created from striking cinematography taken along this road corridor. Made by acclaimed German filmmaker Rainer Komers, winner of a special jury prize at the 2005 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival for his film, “Nome Road System.”
