Celebrating 35 Years of Edition Salzgeber
Director: Michael Stock, 1993, Germany, 89 min
The fall of the Wall tore West Berlin out of its post-punk slumber, in which at least part of the alternative scene had wrapped themselves up together like in a vulture’s nest right next to the wall. Deprived of this protection, the subculture must reorient itself: a haunting snapshot unfolds of an anarchic gay reality that is irretrievably lost. Alexander Hacke of the Einstürzende Neubauten contributes the score.
