** Northwest premiere! Co-presented with Goethe Pop Up Seattle **
Developed by the Nazis as a propagandistic site, Prora was a vacation resort designed to help build sympathies between working-class vacationers and the Nazi party. Though its intended use never fully came to fruition, the site was later used as a military training site which also housed a large group of East German Conscientious Objectors. Today, taking influence from American industry titan Henry Ford, the building is being redeveloped into a contemporary vacation destination, which includes a youth hostel, apartments, condominiums, and hotels.
touristic intents traces Proras history across many decades and uses, drawing contrasts and connections between the Nazi, East German identity, and contemporary political moment, while acknowledging the influence of American industrialization and globalism. It features archival footage and propaganda dating back to the height of the Nazi movement, and interviews with everyone from former conscientious objectors and historians to modern-day architects and designers. The film raises important questions about what role history should play in determining contemporary uses of land and architecture; what does full reclamation of a space look like, and how can it be achieved?
