B-Movie: Lust & Sound
n West Berlin 1979-1989

“…highly engaging” – The Hollywood Reporter

“We enjoyed <…> worth seeing if you get the chance”
– Pet Shop Boys [on their official page]

“…fast, raw, wild” – Der Spiegel

Music, art, and chaos are intertwined in the documentary that features young Nick Cave, Tilda Swinton, Blixa Bargeld, and New Order. These are just a few among the now internationally-known musicians who came to Berlin in 1980s, when the city became a melting pot for both sub- and pop-culture.

‘B-movie’ is a fast-paced collage of mostly unreleased rare footage from a frenzied but highly charged creative decade: there is Blixa Bargeld, skinny as a rake, getting people drunk in the bar ‘Risiko’, and an earnest-looking Nick Cave collecting ‘German Gothic’ on a wall of his room in a Berlin flat.

The story is told by Mark Reeder, British musician, label-maker and military fetishist came to Berlin at the end of the 70s to witness the adrenaline rush of a city.
It all starts with punk and ending with the Love Parade, in Berlin where the days are short and the nights are endless.
