From the dawning of film history until the dismantling of its own Film Institute, the Berlin Charité hospital produced approximately 1000 educational medical films, expository films and experimental science films. There is no film history of the Charité itself.There are scraps: fragments in the form of notes, articles a few photos and a number of films that have remained. How can one tell a story that does not exist, that appears only intermittently in a context of images and documents full of gaps?
