WENDEKLANG - IN THIS PLACE CALLED TECHNO

Country: Germany
Year: 2014

With the fall of the Berlin Wall, 1989 is a crucial year for Germany. Youngsters from East and West converge in illegal clubs, where a new electronic music becomes a distinctive symbol of a search for novelty and freedom: the new Berlin techno is born. From the legendary UFO Club to the Tresor until the first Love Parade, the film follows the evolution of what can be called the first pan-German youth movement.
