COLOGNE, Germany (Hollywood Reporter) - Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton is getting back on her bicycle to travel along what used to be the Berlin Wall.

Swinton, 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." The title refers to the fact that most of the wall has been torn down, though many Germans still speak of an invisible "wall in the minds" dividing east and west Germany.
