On Saturday, September 9th, 2006, a Berlin square was spanned by a monolithic, architectural circle within circles, a vast round table at which 114 chairs faced 114 continuously recording cameras. Reflected within their collective lens, an unprecedented art event and political summit convened, a gathering dedicated to addressing 100 questions originally raised online by people on seven continents.
Ralf Schmerberg’s cinematic interpretation of this world’s largest round table gathering, Problema is a visually imaginative, thought-provoking invitation to a world of global dilemmas. Spanning seventeen questions confronting who we are and where we’re going, the film follows the insights, perceptions, reflections and views of over 100 people from more than 50 nations sat together in one circle.
