Day 10: Destroy what destroys you

What a beautiful night my friends! What a spectacular Award Ceremony! Conchita Wurst was there, Udo Kier and even Andrea Nahles (even if she doesn´t really fit into this list). The TEDDY trophies were given away and we all danced till our toes were bleeding.

So maybe we should do something calm today… how about going to the movies? Maybe something to sharpen our political awareness. How about “Mein wunderbares West-Berlin” by Jochen Hick? In this documentary, Jochen Hick revives memories of the time of political struggles. His film tells us, among other things, about the movement “Homosexuelle Aktion West-Berlin”, which was founded in 1971 and stood up for the exclusion of §175. Jochen Hick takes us back to the time when Berlin was a magical and a very political place. Legends say, by the way, that the “HAW” was founded at the Berlin Film Festival right after the screening of Rosa von Praunheims film “It Is Not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But the Society in Which He Lives “.
