Semi-documentary piece about the Sorb population living close to Berlin, in Spreewald. Photography by Stefan Dotter, printed in French Revue Magazine. 

“The sun sets over Lübbenau's crowded little harbor as 13-year-old Elissa shows us around, pickled cucumber and smoked eel in hand. Her whole family still lives in the area, Grandma sewed the girl's beautiful festive costume. Took her eight months. Elissa can't wait for next year's Fastnacht, one of the Sorbs' most sacred holidays, to show it off. She already got her dancing partner, a Sorb from a neighboring village.”
