In 2014, the AfE tower, a high-rise building of the Goethe University, was blown up by two controlled explosions. Thousands watched as the tower collapsed. Thanks to the confusing elevator system and the concrete architecture, the tower was not popular with many.
Now, three years after the explosion, the AfE tower has been honoured in the science fiction short film, “Rakka”. Director, Neill Blomkamp – who became famous with his social-critical alien thriller ‘District 9’ – captures the fall of the AfE tower (from minute 1:24) in his latest postapokalpytisches Machwerk. In the movie, “Rakka” aliens have subdued mankind in 2020, kept them captive as slaves and fed them to their children.
