September 25, 2013 – Los Angeles.

The Wende Museum, Archive of the Cold War, commissioned Radiant to write and edit a 30 minute documentary film shot in Berlin and Los Angeles.

Collecting Fragments is a road trip through the abandoned Cold War remains of East Germany. The story connects us to the complicated lives of three East German collectors and explains how, and why, their artifacts end up in Los Angeles. The film presents a peculiar view of recent German history through the lens of Los Angeles.

Many thanks to Justin Jampol and Brain Davis for their support and vision.

Film is in English and German.
