3 - The Cut - Solitudo

After 1989 industry had no chance of survival on the old Finow Canal. So a new use had to be found very quickly for the old canal, which was Germany's first man-made waterway and still its most important over one hundred years ago. Tourism? Perhaps. A lonely lock keeper and a community official with a quixotic fighting spirit dream of a more than precarious future in the ice and snow and in the forsaken industrial wasteland on the canal. They point out traces and signs of the past. One is an amazing work of art, a trompe-l’oeil that does without viewers; an example of the oblivious courage to assert yourself. The Cut tells the tale of a winter journey into the recent past with the subtitle of "Solitudo".
