Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo
Appetite whetted from our Bowie special? Exberliner’s teaming up with realeyz.tv for a one-day David Bowie film festival.
Christian Davies’ 2012 documentary Bowie in Berlin (6:00pm) examines the Berlin trilogy, offering an in-depth analysis of the songs, while the 1981 classic Christiane F – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo (8:30pm) uses a Bowie-centric soundtrack – and a performance from the man himself, filmed separately in New York – to underscore its tragic tale of teenage drug abuse in bleak Cold War-era West Berlin.
Last up is 90 minutes of music videos (10:30pm) spanning Bowie’s entire career, from 1972’s “Space Oddity” to last year’s “Where Are We Now?”.
Screenings will be followed by surprise guests.
RSVP our our Facebook event.
