Since April 10th, the second Musik Film Marathon has featured around 40 events in Berlin, from feature films to experimental films to documentaries. Tonight the festival will close with two extraordinary events, taking place at two extraordinary locations. First at Martin-Gropius-Bau. The German movie Ein Großer Garaublauer Vogel, directed by acclaimed film-maker Thomas Schamoni will be screened. It features actors such as Klaus Lemke, Rolf Becker and Marquart Bohm, to name a few. The score was written by genre-defining krautrockers Can, and the soundtrack also includes their track ‘She Brings the Rain’, which was later featured in Wim Wenders‘ 1994 film Lisbon Story, Oskar Roehler’s Die Unberührbare (2000) and Tran Anh Hung‘s film Norwegian Wood (2010).
The screening of the movie will be followed by a talk between Heiner Mühlenbrock and Irmin Schmidt from Can, both of whom will be speaking about various soundtracks Can has been working on in the last decades. Finally, there will be a party at the infamous .HBC celebrating the end of the second Musik Film Marathon with DJs such as Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Thomas Wydler (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), Frank Behnke (ex –MUTTER) and Max Dax (Electronic Beats).
Come, watch and dance!
