B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989

       Culture
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. (Click CC for closed captions)

The Rise of the Synths

   2019    Art
What is Synthwave? An irresistible blend of nostalgia and music; of creative processes and cultural references; of re-appropriation and legitimate creation. Is a random revival or an emerging cultural phenomenon? Narrated by iconic director John Carpenter, the film is a journey back and forth in time, from to the roots of this scene to its impact on today's pop culture, from the universe of creating sounds to the Synthwave Music.
