TEN CITIES Screening Series: Sub-Berlin – The Story of Tresor, May 22 2014 @ Goethe Institut Auditorium
A must-see flick about (Berlin) club culture history: Tilmann Künzel’s documentary SubBerlin – The Story of Tresor (2008, 89min). SubBerlin traces the history of Berlin’s famous club Tresor from its beginning in the early ‘90s to the closure of its original location in 2005.
The original Tresor was in many ways the quintessential Berlin club: located in an unrenovated vault beneath a bombed out department store, it quickly became a second home for artists like Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills and Blake Baxter, as well as countless German DJs. The documentary includes interviews with many of the artists that played at the venue, as well as the people that made the club happen, such as original founder Dimitri Hegemann.
The TEN CITIES Screening Series shows numerous feature films and documentaries, focusing on different aspects of club and sub-culture around the globe, and will continue at Goethe-Institut and other venues.
