Music, art and chaos in the wild West-Berlin of the 1980s.

The walled-in city became the creative melting pot for sub- and pop-culture. Before the iron curtain fell, everything and anything seemed possible. B-MOVIE is a fast-paced collage of mostly unreleased film and TV footage from a frenzied but creative decade, starting with punk and ending with the Love Parade, in a city where the days are short and the nights are endless. Where it was not about long-term success, but about living for the moment - the here and now.


In German with English subtitles. Germany, 2015, Colour, 92 min., Rated M, Dir. Jorg A. Hoppe, Heiko Lange, Klaus Maeck.
