“Back in 2017 I was living on the liveliest street in Berlin. I've heard legends about how loud and crazy this street gets on the New Year’s Eve. I wanted to document this night of madness and freedom, understand it's symbolic meaning to the people from all over the world. I was flashed by the energy and mixed feelings of foolhardiness and fear that people bring upon each other. I wanted to tell of it using the caught images and free sound associations. It's a midnight song about masculinity, joy and rivalry. “ (Magda Jaroszewicz)
