Synopsis: The video THE UNINVITED (The Uninvited – a documentary film) portrays in quasi-documentary form the daily life of a young family, strolling through Berlin's "Neue Mitte" ("New Center") and shows the societal change that can be seen in the gestures of the figures as well as the surrounding architecture. THE UNINVITED uses the genre of ghost story to narrate the fictional history of a ghostly apparition: ghostly figures who can be seen as the personification of a certain social uneasiness cross and re-cross the family's path in real spots in Berlin. They appear to them. The ghostly figures are meant to contrast with social consensus, which the family tries to follow. But something uncanny seems to be inherent even in this consensus.
