THE ROAD, TGKW in All-Time-Top20

The Guardian“ (Sept. 20th, 18) published her selection of the 20 best music documentaries.
We are delighted to find „The Road, To God Knows Where“ by Uli M Schueppel inside this selection.

„No.13. The Road to God Knows Where (1990)
The recent Nick Cave documentaries (…) showcase a mature and reflective artist. For unsparing grit and grime, there’s Uli M Schueppel’s black-and-white film of the Bad Seeds’ 1989 US tour, heavy on the boredom and frustrations of life on the road.“


DREAMCATCHER – new music-video

Uli M Schueppel created the new musicvideo “Dreamcatcher” for HACKEDEPICCIOTTO (Danielle De Picciotto & Alexander Hacke) from their album “Menetekel”.

German Film Academy / Cinematheque – archive

In occasion of the 50th jubilee of the German Film- and TV Academy (DFFB) the Deutsche Kinemathek (German Cinematheque) has released an extensive online-archive with films, pictures and documents. In addition some texts by film-scientists focus on main topics (sorry, only in German-language available!)

Uli M Schueppel studied at the DFFB between 1984 to 1989. In an interesting article by Ralph Eue  „Works between Film, Video and Music 1978-88“ the development from Christoph Dreher, to Peter Braatz, to Uli M Schueppel in the academy-history can be followed, „in which the filmmakers- and musician-milieus mingle in a massiv and enthusiastic way“.


Uli M Schueppel will tutor at the German Film Academy again & again …


Zwischentöne – Deutschlandfunk

On the history-charged November 9th in Germany Uli M Schueppel will be guest in a 90min show „Zwischentöne“ (Soundshades) and talk about his films, his life and Berlin and… „Deutschlandfunk“ (13:30-15:00, live stream & as well on podcast after).



Shlim-Line Show – DIE ZEIT-online

In the late 80’s in West-Berlin Uli M Schueppel has made a radio-show (with Johannes Beck), called „Shlim-Line Show“. In their last broadcasting in October 1989 they „opened the wall 14 days too early“… (acoustically!)

This story is picked up in an interesting article on DIE ZEIT-online by Carolin Ströbele und Maria Exner. With original sound-bits, pics, etc. (Sorry, but again, only in german!)
