PREMIERE: 62. Berlin Int. Film Festival (Panorama)
“Broetzmann…” can be watched directly NOW HERE as VoD-stream!
End of 2010, after 14 years break, Caspar Broetzmann performs again in original lineup with his band “Caspar Broetzmann Massaker” at the legendary Berlin-club “Berghain”. Through the 80s and early 90s the trio was part of the most innovative German musicians in West-Berlin. Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) describes Capar Brötzmann as one of the best guitar players he has ever met.
After their time-out, they came back even more heavy, loud, precise, clear and almost transparent, and presented a wide screen from the deepest soul, full of atmospheric images – „music that could hang also in the Louvre “ (Monika Doehring/Loft).
The director Uli M. Schueppel takes this concert as an opportunity, to finally portray this only in the scene circles recognized musicians. On paths through nature he approaches with him the spiritual landscapes, where this timeless music could be rooted.
“Broetzmann – Thats When the World Is Mine “ shows the emotional interspaces from which Caspar Brötzmann creates his powerful, archaic soundscapes. Between noise and silence the film develops from the inside a sensitive portrait of a musician, who always consistently went his own way, without subordinating himself to the rules of the music business.
