Berlin Calling

Sharp, stylish and heaving with underground electro anthems that will get all music and film lovers feeling the beat, Berlin Calling is an independent production causing a stir at an international level. It follows the turbulent existence of fictional DJ Ickarus who is played deftly by real life DJ Paul Kalkbrenner. After a particularly bad trip he wakes in rehab. Surrounded by bizarre personalities, he struggles to find enough peace of mind to compose his eagerly awaited second album. Unable to deal with Dr. Petra Paul’s authoritarian regulations, Ickarus rebels with often amusing consequences. Shot in real clubs, this film succeeds to portray the gritty reality of substance abuse. Through his perspective we discover how this chaotic lifestyle significantly affects his state of mind and his relationships.

Berlin Calling was a consecutive sell out at the Leeds 22nd International Film festival last month. The final credits were met with a standing ovation and rapturous round of applause. This is an engaging and memorable film.
