Film Night: Berlin Babylon, Wednesday 5th December.


Am very excited that Hubertus Siegert, director if the 2001 documentary film Berlin Babylon, will be joining us for a screening of his film, with a chance to chat about it afterwards.

The doc follows many of the key architects and other players in the ‘euphoric’ first wave of Berlin’s reconstruction in the late 1990s, including Renzo Piano, the late Günter Behnisch and others as they muse on the business of reconstructing huge areas of the city from scratch.

Plus it’s got a soundtrack composed by Einstürzende Neubauten, which you can’t say about many architecture documentary films. Or indeed most films.

As usual, 7.30pm at Hudson’s Cafe, Schönleinstr 1.  Be punctual, as we want to have some time at the end!

  1. This looks fascinating. Will it have English subtitles?

  2. Hi Patrick,
    I assume so, as the book and website are in English, but will double check before we show it!

  3. Strange, i tried to find the place,
    but Schönleinstr 1 simply does
    not exist. I also walked down
    most of Schönleinstr but could
    not find Hudson’s cafe.

  4. Hi, many apologies, should have written ‘Boppstrasse 1′ on the corner with Schoenleinstrasse. Hope you find us for the next event. Jim
