The Walk a Short Film by Michael Jung



Buried in the rubble of World War II Werner survived. With the help of a horse he found a way to manage the trauma. Werner’s life is a way to look at post-war Germany, not just the rebirth of industry, but the coming to terms with the suffering that W.G. Sebald said was the real hidden secret of post war Germans.

Jenny, the Arabian mare, has been walking the streets and fields of Frankfurt - every day - on her own - for more than 15 years.
Jenny is an internet star. This film tells the story of Werner and Jenny.
