Join us for a screening and Q&A discussion of the film with Berlin legend Mark Reeder.

B-MOVIE is a documentary about music, art, and chaos in the Wild West Berlin of the 1980s: the walled-in city became a creative melting pot sub and pop culture, attracting dilettantes and world-famous celebrities alike. It was not about long-term commercial success, but about living for the moment, and the here and now. 

In this fast-paced collage of stories from a frenzied but creative decade, from punk to techno, in a time when  Berlin was like a B:Movie: with punk and ending with the Love Parade—all from a city where the days are short and the nights are endless. In a time Berlin was like a B-MOVIE: Colorfully cheap and trashy, threatened and thrown together, anxious and ambitious, clubbed and canned, stoned and strung out, drunk, drugged, and just very special.

Told primarily through unreleased TV and film footage, photos, and original interviews, B -MOVIE extolls the story of life in the divided city—a cultural interzone in which everything and anything seemed possible in a place unlike anywhere else in Europe. The film stars Gudrun Gut, Nena, Nick Cave, Joy Division, and more familiar faces from the old Berlin scene.

The event is free of charge, but capacity is limited. Admission is only guaranteed with a digital ticket, so be sure to download yours today to save your spot.

 

About Mark Reeder
Mark Reeder is the John Galt of Berlin’s ever-changing music constellation. Back in 1978, he went record shopping in Berlin but found something else: a fascinating, divided city. His passion for music shaped a new scene and movement that changed the face of East and West Berlin’s punk and techno culture.

Who is Mark Reeder? Former German representative of Factory Records, he promoted his friends Joy Division and New Order. He played in bands (Frantic Elevators, Die Unbekannten, Shark Vegas, and Alien Nation). He threw illegal punk rock concerts in East Berlin with Die Töten Hosen, and despite being labeled a ‘subversive dekadent’ by the Stasi, produced the very last record in the GDR. A techno original, he primed Paul van Dyk to fame and started the first techno/trance label MFS (Masterminded for Success) in 1990, East Berlin. Aside from his sixth sense for sound, he’s the face of hit documentary B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West Berlin, starring himself, sex, drugs, and rock n’ techno. And to think, all these cool accolades began with a thrill for records and smuggling tapes.

All
About

Jägermeister is proud to present the Berlin Night Embassy scholarship program this fall. After uncovering some of the creative community's most visionary ideas for reinventing Berlin’s nightlife, six Ambassadors with the boldest ideas in the city were chosen. 

As Pansy, Ghost, I x No Start No End, Peripheral Intuitions, MOVE.UNLTD, CO:QUO x Digi-Gxl, and Sweetest Taboo, the Ambassadors come from around the world, but share a common love for the city’s nightlife. We’re also giving them a blank canvas to explore their chosen topics and concepts with the support of the NIGHT EMBASSY Creative Board, five renowned figures known for their contributions to Berlin’s club and music culture: Lutz Leichsenring, executive member of the Berlin Club Commission; music journalist Christine Kakaire; Dimitri Hegemann, Berlin club luminary and founder of Tresor; Linnea Palmestal, DJ, activist and founder of women’s, trans and non-binary collective No Shade; and Bernard Koomson, DJ and founder of artist collective deadHYPE. Under the curatorial direction of each ambassador, the NIGHT EMBASSY will also be a public showcase of their work, putting them in charge of a day-to-night program with collaborators and mediums of their choice.

Starting on September 6, they’re given a blank canvas and a two-week residencies in our custom-built modular art and music space in the heart of Kreuzberg to explore new creative directions in Berlin's nightlife through day-to-night programming ranging from workshops, film screenings, performances, and parties, of course.

The NIGHT EMBASSY draws inspiration from both Jägermeister’s own heritage of irreverent perfectionism and the freeform creativity of Berlin’s long-standing nightlife and art scene. As such, Jägermeister welcomes artists based in Berlin from any background, age and level of experience: The NIGHT EMBASSY is open to all bold thinkers committed to bringing their ideas to life. Our selected projects shine a light on new possibilities for artforms connected to club culture, and foster a strong sense of community.

Each residency will be tailored to the experience of its participants. With educational lectures, hands-on workshops and expert guidance to help cultivate their career in the arts and onwards, the program aims to equip each ambassador with the inspiration, technical know-how and practical support to transform their creative practice and redefine Berlin’s nightlife.
