Discussions and reflections on the issues of night culture
North American premiere of STADT OHNE MORGEN a short documentary on the history of Berlin’s curfew.
In 1949, the curfew in Berlin was abolished once and for all by a man named Heinz Zellermayer, paving the way for the never-ending nights and limitless freedom Berliners still enjoy today. STADT OHNE MORGEN explores how this decision has enabled Berlin’s nightlife to grow into a diverse club culture and what it means to have this freedom in a city that is rapidly changing.
The presentation of the short film will be followed by a videocall with Lutz Leichsenring, spokesperson of Club Commission, an organization representing club owners and night professionals in Berlin, which co-produced the film.
Please note the film will be shown in its original german version with english subtitles.
