THE ROAD, TGKW in top 20
„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.“

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 again at the German Film Academy from May to August 2016.
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).

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!)
