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).
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!)
In the radio-show „Kompressor“ Uli M Schueppel will be guest on Nov.7th ( „DeutschlandradioKultur“ 14-15h).
The „schueppel-films“ homepage is redesigned and up-dated by the fabulous web-designer Jón Einar Hjartarson – so many thanks!
Online from Nov. 6!
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)
” For his outstanding Achievements in Music-Documentary-Filmmaking and its Industry “.
Many thanks to the organisators, the jury and the team of SPFF!

Berlin Alexanderplatz 2000 – within 24 hours, various stories rotate between the heights and depths of the square, between the television tower and the subway shafts, between larger and smaller fates, that slowly but surely become entangled.
Love, murder, fairytale, drugs, madness, humor and a lot of music – planet alex moves playfully through various genre. A sparkling firework of ideas that come together in a greater story. With its driving rhythm, the film sketches the seeming loss of orientation in Berlins city as a pulsating, shimmering network.

FROZEN STORIES (JAHRE DER KÄLTE)
„A film that conveys true physical pain, not through vulnerable, personal reflection alone.“
(DEUTSCHES ALLGEM. SONNTAGSBLATT 9.9.94)
„Its about the horrors of a gerneration. Life in hell…
It appears as a flickering montage. As if burning… Every word is comprehensible. All ghosts end here.“
(SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG 30.8.94)
„Extraordinary! Almost brutal…“
