A city, a decade and a window into contemporary history. From the Berlin artistic movement of the 80's, B-Movie traces a peculiar look at a time of strong political and social tensions, appealing, in an intriguing way, to archival images, sometimes to scenarios. Chaotic, divided and multicultural, Berlin emerges as the backdrop, in the last years of the Cold War, to the story of a young English who is sucked into the atmosphere of the city. From Nick Cave to Einstürzende Neubauten, past Nena, Keith Haring or Christiane F., here are some of the larger figures who crossed the path of Mark Reeder. (Alexandra João Martins)
