The BERLINALE-Trailer/Opener, created by Uli M Schueppel in 2001, went for this years 65.Int. Berlin-Filmfestival through a completely new, digital process. Schueppel and the team of ARRI-Mitte, as digital-masters, made a remake into newest technical standards.
Specially shot 35mm-film material is used for colors, layers and movements, and is woven on 4K, highframerate and stereo3D into the new digitalized, but still recognizable elements of the sequence. Also the sound/music by Johannes Koeniger and Xaver von Treyer was remixed by Rotor-Film Babelsberg, and a Dolby-Atmos version was produced as well.
This remake edition of the Berlinale-Opener will be screened at the 65.Int. Berlin Filmfestival (6. – 15.2.15) prior to all 2 500 screenings and in all sections.
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at Stadtmuseum-Berlin (Ephraim-Palais, from Nov14th) will present the video „Lost – Last night Risiko“ as part of the historical documents.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
