  3. The Magazine for Leica M Photography

    09/21/2014, Atterwasch is already experiencing the effects of energy transformation; but in its case, the village has to give way to brown coal, the traditional energy source, to be further developed in the area. According to the energy company, brown coal should be supported so that it can help cover Berlin’s electricity needs in the future. Is that sustainable and just? 

    Born in 1979, the Italian photographer Marco del Pra’ and his Leica M spent a year with the inhabitants of the village of Atterwasch. In ten to fifteen years nothing will remain of this community located on the border with Poland: coal diggers are already ploughing the area, the relocation of the inhabitants is in full swing, and mining brown coal in the region has been a fait accompli since 2007. Del Pra documented life there in haunting black and white photos, which he has enriched with creative elements as part of a multimedia documentation.

  4. Frédéric Dubois Creator of "Atterwasch"

    When we first saw the interactive documentary “atterwasch” our whole team dropped everything and got sucked into the experience. It’s a haunting cautionary tale about a tiny German town struggling to exist while a Swedish energy company threatens to demolish their village and strip-mine it to harvest brown coal. The story begins in the far future, imagining an apocalyptic world where the mining operations consume the landscape, then moves back in time to the earliest days of the town’s existence. We caught up with author and producer Frédéric Dubois for insights into how they made this gorgeous, cinematic story.

  5. Marco del Pra's Atterwasch story

    “atterwasch. is a documentary about the German village of Atterwasch which is under pressure to make way for a brown coal open-cast mine, despite the fact that the village exemplifies Germany’s acclaimed energy transition. This multimedia documentary focuses on the uncertainty Atterwasch’s residents were confronted with over a one-year period (2013-2014). You are free to determine the pace of the narrative yourself.”
