Vogelsang
The warm sleep of a Saturday lunchtime inner suburb. A percussive bang; people look around, look that way, up Bebelstraße. A tram, with the incline and priority in its favour has hit a car gambling its way across the line. The car is now on the adjacent Stadtbahn track, spun around a quarter turn to face up the hill.

Police cars and fire vehicles appear as if they had been lying wait. The street awakes: the festive atmosphere that prevails after a road traffic accident in which no-one is hurt. One of the uniforms is capturing the crash site with his camera; the Polizei and Feuerwehr stand in a semi-circle around the errant vehicle, as if arranged for a group photograph.

Augustenstraße / Reuchlinstraße
Dusk, in a district of tall mansion blocks. A car filled with shouting young Turks tears around the corner, screeching at the tyres. Several seconds later, making the same turn in reverse and several storeys above, a gang of swifts, tumbling and screaming.

It looked like utopia; it looked like the end of the world.
