Languages: German, Polish with English subtitles
Director: Heinz Brinkmann

For Berliners, the Baltic island of Usedom was once the most luxurious destination for excursions within striking distance of the city. This is where imperial Germany's grand health resorts of Bansin, Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck were built. Heinz Brinkmann, who was born in Heringsdorf, traces the eventful history of his island.
"Shaping personal & geographical history into sun-drenched dollops, the director Heinz Brinkmann fashions a charmingly quirky guide to his island home." -Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times
