Wuppertal 2050

Wuppertal, Germany is not a likely locale for para-military gunfights and flying car chases—at least not yet. Fueled by a fund from Medienprojekt Wuppertal, a group of film students created this ambitious film set in a futuristic Wuppertal to promote the video magazine Borderline.

The film’s director, Christoph Heimer, is currently enrolled in Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg (although he wasn’t quite a student yet at the time of making this project).

The look of the project was based on original posters for Medienprojekt Wuppertal illustrated by Berlin-based artist Reinhard Kleist.
