Church of Film: Berlin Underground

January 7, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free
Church of Film

FREE. Wednesday, January 7th. Part One, 8pm. Part Two, 9pm (after Intermission). Presenting Berlin in the late 70s and early 80s, through a glass darkly — several glasses of whiskey. The first part of our program features BERLIN NOW (1985), a rare document of the punk underground, featuring inset video pieces with Matador, Blixa Bargeld, Einsturzende Neubauten, and a half dozen other bands from Germany’s punk/post punk scene!

Part Two will be TICKET OF NO RETURN (1979), by feminist art, fashion and film genius Ulrike Ottinger, who constructed a carnivalesque madcap of lesbianism, feminine rebellion, couture and alcoholism on a wild bar-hop through the seedy underbelly of the fractured German capital. A woman only described as “She” (played by model Tabea Blumenschein) leaves her life of luxury and privilege in La Rotunda, and purchases a one-way ticket to Berlin to pursue her life’s goal: a drinking binge to end them all.

Merry-making and self-destruction at its finest and best-dressed! Featuring Eddie Constantine, Magdalena Montezuma, a young Nina Hagen, and the a who’s who of the German avant-garde — it’s a towering achievement of renegade film art! At the North Star Ballroom.
