The frenzied last decade of the West Berlin underworld, before the fall of the Berlin wall, was always famous but we have never seen it in such a visceral way as in this documentary premiered at the Berlinale.

B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979–1989
Music, art and chaos in the wild West-Berlin of the 1980s. The walled-in city became the creative melting pot for sub- and pop-culture. Before the iron curtain fell, everything and anything seemed possible.
This film is a fast-paced collage of mostly unreleased film and TV footage from a frenzied but creative decade, starting with punk and ending with the Love Parade, in a city where the days are short and the nights are endless.
Where it was not about long-term success, but about living for the moment - the here and now.
