Shawn and Chris, two of the most important barristas during the beginning of The Barn, decided to leave the epicenter of Berlin’s Third Wave Coffee to start their own business within the space of Kreuzberg’s Voo store.

Imagine a film with very long shots. Imagine a film that doesn’t follow a clear story line. Imagine a film without reverse shots, without a commentary, without an exposition or a conventional interest in building up tension. Imagine that film to be set in Bulgaria. At night. Mostly inside an ambulance car. Imagine that film to be one of most exciting films of the year so far.
A weekly Berlin-‐based film comment
Hello and welcome to a new facet of Stil in Berlin! This column is called Discover This!, because every week I want to invite you to be curious and open-‐minded and discover films that you might otherwise overlook.

Still looking for a lunch place for this snow covered, yet slightly sunny day? Hashi Izakaya might meet your hopes for a warming yet enlivening dish, like the Udon soup pictured above in the veggie version. Although I heard, that the beef version’s broth is a lot heartier, the fresh noodles and vegetables make a great and healthy lunch option in this Japanese place just below a gym in this rather weird corner building.
You know what, we Berliners should all go to Hamburg more often. Seriously, it’s a beautiful city and home to some very smart and very enjoyable people, like Melanie.
