Jörg A. Hoppe, Klaus Maeck & Heiko Lange • 2015 • 92 mins • Germany •

Vintage footage and reenactments evoke the vibrant music and art scene of West Berlin during the divided city's punky, druggy, trashy 1980s heyday - with fleeting appearances from Nick Cave, Tilda Swinton, Keith Haring, and David Hasselhoff.


Open Event screened in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut.
