Party city. Historical city. Raunchy city

Ugly as hell. As beautiful as it gets. A non-stop rave. A center for fine arts. The Capital of Germany and a European metropolis, yet ‘poor but sexy’. Berlin is many things to many people.

Lucky for us, however, quite a few of those people are talented filmmakers. This film collection celebrates the best and worst of this great and terrible city. The wild West Berlin of the 1970s and 80s, a drug-heavy capital of hedonism and music, is depicted by well known films like Christiane F. - We Children of Bahnhof Zoo or the more recent B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin. But there are many other layers to this historic metropolis.

These films will give you an insight into Cold War Berlin & Berlin's post-unification techno scene in the 90s. You can explore the drama and comedy of LGBT Berlin, and find much else besides. 

Whether you live here, have visited, or plan to come soon: you’ll find some magical films to watch.
