ARD is shooting new spy thriller

For the anniversary of the Berlin Wall

In the thriller, a double agent from the GDR falls in love with her CIA boss (Ulrich Thomsen). By 2019, the shooting will extend across Berlin.

Adopted from:
Published: 13 November 2018

Funny warning sign for a hospital: “Stop! Do you feel sick? If you are ill today, please do not enter the embassy area. “But the rather run-down building complex at Fabeckstrasse 62 in Lichterfelde has long been no longer in the care of the health care system, since 1994 no more than the Americans have their hospital and their entire military presence in Berlin tasks.

So it has to be some kind of movie prop, as well as the foyer, the old device for scanning visitor bags, with the sign on the conveyor belt, as well as the cleanly stacked concrete cuboids, which turn out to be light polystyrene poles, or the turnstiles of Perey, New York.

Welcome to the past: In the empty buildings, in a few years – in Berlin an elastic concept – the future will be housed in the form of the technology and start-up center Fubic, a kind of counterpart to Adlershof with spin-offs of the FU. At the moment, however, “Wendezeit” is being played here – the working title of a spy thriller, which is to be broadcast in the fall of 2019 as an ARD event film on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

In many corners of Berlin, the team has filmed director Sven Bohse, in the Karl-Marx-Allee, in the former Stasi headquarters, in the residential area of ​​the Westend – where there was also a building that goes smoothly in the movie as DDR-Plattenbau – , in the “Berliner Straße” of the Babelsberg studios and now here in the former US military hospital in Steglitz.

Between two identities
The West Berlin CIA resident has been built here, which in reality was housed in the US headquarters in the Zehlendorfer Clayallee – one of the central venues of the story agent, workplace of the main character Saskia, presented by Petra Schmidt-Schaller. A young woman with secret Eastern biography, spy in the service of socialism, sent by agent Markus Wolf personally in the track and landed perfectly in the class enemy.

Stupid only that she actually loves the American she married to optimize her legend and her two children anyway. The conditions in the GDR have made them but also thoughtful, somehow they can keep their two sides still in balance, as it suddenly comes to an end with the GDR and the beautiful double life threatens to fly up.

Among the spies are double agent Saskia (Petra Schmidt-Schaller) and her CIA chief (Ulrich Thomsen).
