A massive film-art project in the German capital is set to rebuild part of the Berlin Wall to create a closed-off mini-state, complete with visa checks, organizers said Tuesday. The walled-in "city within a city" will host the world premiere of the mysterious and mammoth "DAU" film project and social experiment of enigmatic Russian filmmaker Ilya Khrzhanovsky, 43 .Pending final approval from Berlin city authorities, which organizers said was "in the works," staff plan to erect 900 concrete wall slabs, each 3.60 meters tall, for the 6.6 million-euro ($7.7 million) event.Others are excited about a convention-busting art event that will evoke, but not seek to replicate, the Cold War past of Berlin.The project started in 2005 as a conventional biopic, with funding from several European countries, but evolved into what Caravan magazine labeled a "brutal and baroque movie project/human experiment".The reclusive Khrzhanovsky did not attend the Berlin press event.
