About the Berlinale-Trailer/Opener:

– DIE ZEIT, Ijoma Mangold (23.Feb.2012):
“At the Berlinale you do everything imaginable for not being too late in the cinema hall, for not missing the Festival-Opener. It is not easy to describe, why this opener has something so celebratory. It is accompanied with a kind of minimalistic, cool music, where the beat moves on, meanwhile the sponsors get shown, before it says ‘The Festival presents’. You would think this is a banal process – but somehow here so exhilarating…” BERLINALE.DE

BROETZMANN – Thats When The World Is Mine

 in the Official Programm of 62nd Berlin Int Film Festival (Panorama)

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”. The director Uli M. Schueppel narrates around this concert the emotional (in-between) spaces, from which Caspar Brotzmann creates his powerful archaic soundscapes. Between noise and silence the film develops from within a sensitive portrait of a musician, who always consistently went his own way, without subordinating himself to the rules of the music business.
