Hansa Studios: By The Wall 1976-90 Hansa Studios: By The Wall 1976-90

Mike Christie / United Kingdom / 2018 / 90 min / English

Few studios have hosted as many excellent musicians as Hansa, Berlin. No other studio offers such a unique environment as this isolated building standing in the middle of the Potsdam Square, abandoned at the time, in West Berlin, only a few metres from the wall.


The wall was portrayed in this very studio in the song Heroes by David Bowie, while, also at this location, his flatmate Iggy Pop discovered his Lust for Life and found the inspiration for The Passenger while using the U-Bahn and S-Bahn. U2’s album Achtung Baby was also recorded here. Hansa has been the birthplace of many other milestone albums by bands like Depeche Mode, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Siouxsie and the Banshees, R.E.M., Supergrass and many others. The documentary shows how the studio—formerly known as a factory of German schlager music—turned into a place that defined a whole generation of global musicians.

The film features Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten), Tony Fox Sales (the bassist of Iggy Pop and David Bowie), Gaz Coombes & Danny Goffey (Supergrass), Klaus Kruger & Johannes Schmöelling (Tangerine Dream), Mick Harvey, Thomas Wydler & Barry Adamson (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), Fish & Steve Rothery (Marillion), Colin Newman & Graham Lewis (Wire) and others.

Bong Joon-ho

Tuesday, 02. 06. 2020 / 20:00 / Main Hall

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
