Tilda Swinton gets back on her bike

Actress heads back to Berlin Wall for cycling doc

COLOGNE, Germany -- Oscar winner and Berlinale jury president Tilda Swinton is getting back on her bike to travel along what used to be the Berlin Wall.

Swinton, together with filmmaker Cynthia Beatt, biked the length of the Berlin Wall in 1998. Beatt filmed the journey, but the material was never used.

The pair plan to retrace their trip this month for a new documentary, "Cycling the Invisible Frame." Frieder Schlaich of Berlin-based company Filmgalerie 451 will produce. The title refers to the fact that most of the wall has been torn down, though many Germans still speak of a invisible "wall in the minds" dividing east and west Germany.
