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!)
The exhibition „West:Berlin“ at Stadtmuseum-Berlin (Ephraim-Palais, from Nov14th) will present the video „Lost – Last night Risiko“ as part of the historical documents. http://www.stadtmuseum.de/aktuelles/westberlin
Finally we can now present the eighth film through this homepage for stream (in the section „Watch Films Now“): Jahre der Kälte (only German version!)
„This is/was an important film for me, cause it’s not only dealing with German post-war history, and all horror my father and his friends had to go through by founding a liberal-democratic party in the soviet-occupied territory, but it also tries to capture an imaginary dialog between me and my late father.“ U. Schueppel
(Soundtrack: Blixa Bargeld)
