After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, a community of queer people occupied a house in the almost derelict Mainzer Straße in Berlin. Juliet Bashore’s legendary documentary follows the fortunes of the queer house. It follows the daily struggle of the queens and queers to have a place for themselves in the chaos and unrest after German reunification. Together they try to create and defend this anarchistic space until it is violently evicted by the police.

We get a polyphonically perverse visit from Berlin from the residents of the Fag House and their friends! The queer-anarchist Rattenchor has been singing against injustice for about 20 years and will entertain us with a concert of well-known hits in new and political guise. One or the other cork will surely pop in our bar – you are warmly invited!
