Prora, the so-called Monster by the sea, is considered the longest building in the world.

Originally planned as a seaside resort of the Third Reich, after the Second World War Prora was transformed into the largest barracks in East Germany. After the German reunification it was left abandoned for a long time and today the building serves as a location for hotels and holiday suites. The film examines and unravels various historical, architectural and psychological layers of this building complex and creates surprising interconnections between people and the building as well as between modern architecture and the phenomenon of mass tourism.

Shown in programme with Day of Architecture film

The screening is followed by a discussion with the director
