Heiner-Carow-Preis awarded to 'B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin'!
Berlinale surprise Hit 'B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West Berlin' continues to receive praise and awards, most recently the Heiner-Carow-Preis!
'B-Movie' ist arguably the best documentation of the music, art and genral chaos reigning West Berlin during the 80s. The film tells the story of the decade from Punk to the advent of Techno - when the walled-in city was a wild creative melting pot for sub- and pop culture, genial dilettants and global stars - cleverly splicing rare authentic footage with new material and a thumping soundtrack.
Produced by Jorg Hoppe, our very own Klaus Maeck and Heiko Lange.
Freibank works featured include 'Yü Gung', 'Trinklied' and 'Hören mit Schmerzen' by Einstürzenden Neubauten, 'Que Pas' by Sprung aus den Wolken, 'Computerstaat' by Abwärts, 'Casualties' und 'Radio War' by Die Unbekannten, 'Vincent Price' by Phonique und 'Menace' von Velvet Condom.
The Heiner-Carow-Preis is awarded since 2013 at the Berlinale in commemoration of the legendary GDR director by the Berlin-based DEFA-Stiftung.
