Past summer American filmer Brett Nichols visited the two German cities Berlin and Hannover. His edit “SPÄTI” chronicles this ten days trip and features next to his American friends Harrison Hafner and Bobby Groves also some very common German personalities like Dennis Laaß, Niels Brauer, Malte Spitz, Jonas Hess, Conny Mirbach and with Tjark Thielker, Daniel Pannemann and Danny Sommerfeld even half of the PLACE staff.
“Späti (pronounced shpi-tee) is a shorthand for a German corner store. It was the most common word spoken by my new German friends Nils Brauer, Daniel Pannemann, Tjark Thielker, and so many others. Between every spot a debate would be sparked as to where the nearest späti was and whether it was in the direction we needed to go. The späti serves as both the snackbar and the regular bar – unlike The States, you are free to sample adult beverages right outside.” – Brett Nichols
