A group of city nomads have to flee when their last hide out – a condemned factory complex – is to be knocked down. Photographer, author and filmmaker Miron Zownir’s second feature film, BACK TO NOTHING is a street ballad shot on abandoned, dilapidated locations in Berlin. A group of freaks subsist as city nomads in an uncontrolled ghetto that is doomed for demolition. All hell breaks loose when their last hide out – a condemned factory complex – is to go under the wrecking ball. Kongo, Strasser, Bobby and Jackie are heading out – back to nothing. Zownir’s stark black and white imagery depicts an erratic, immoral shadow world without hope or mercy that forces his protagonists to the lowest level of survival.
