Tom Lass, the director of the movie, began his acting career at the age of 15 in Munich. Since then he has participated in more than 40 film and TV projects. In 2005 he began to start looking behind the scenes by working as a production assistant. He made his first experiences with the concept of improvising in film as an actor with the short feature film „Quiet Spring“ that was released in 2007. Tom finished his first short film „0+0=1“ as a director in 2008 and founded a production company together with his brother Jakob Lass, “Lass Bros”. He became more and more convinced by improvisation – making films without script – that he tried it himself in his first feature film „Papa Gold“, that won the film critic’s prize at the Achtung Berlin film festival in 2011. Tom works and lives in Berlin.
They are called Dr. Motte and Wladimir Kaminer but also Schraubermicha or Ginger Brown. They and many others are visitors to the Mauerpark. The film from director Dennis Karsten tells the stories of people from the East Berlin city park between Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding. Today, the park offers above all space for artistic creativity and is an intercultural meeting place for people from all walks of society, for individualists, artists, sportsmen and women, musicians and brings them together. The uniqueness of the park lies in the peaceful coexistence of alternative life styles, fringe groups and subcultures. However, the park also stands for the change taking place in the district, which is under pressure from gentrification. Building plans from a property developer are threatening the area, but it is still holding its own with its diverse structures. The film submerges into the depths of the Mauerpark microcosm and observes the different dimensions of the park. It not only portrays the various visitors, but also the park’s diversity by showing its closeness to nature and the activities of insects and birds there. “Mauerpark” captures the summer of 2009 in Berlin, showing the uniqueness and variety of the park’s cosmos and the prevalent feeling of freedom there. It is a poetic and sometimes funny portrait of the magic of the park and the people there.
When the Berlin Wall came down 25 years ago, one of the loudest, flashiest and fastest decades were launched: the 90s! Techno fought grunge, models with spaghetti straps became popstars and in the movies Forrest Gump was in search for happiness. The 90s are still cult and the music by acts like 2 Unlimited, Masterboy, Haddaway, Captain Hollywood Project, Magic Affair, Charly Lownoise or Marusha is still hanging in our ears. The sunshine live „Die 90er” brings the “decade of awesome” and its artists back on the dance floors of the clubs. The fattest tracks of the 90 Club Stars ara now available on the new compilation “sunshine live – die 90er”.
Vintage Vegas are conquering Germany. Las Vegas, almost no city in this world polarizes that much and is associated with glitter, glamor, money and of course Frank Sinatra. Inspired by the ancient lifestyle of the “El Dorado” of gambling and based on the idea to create a modern “Rat Pack” that pack pop hits in a cool Swing sound, the band Vintage Vegas was founded. Vintas Vegas consists of three experienced passionated musicians. The first one is the smart Italian singer Giovanni Zarrella, which can look back sold on nearly 5 million records, trained pianist Tom Marks, who for years worked as a composer, singer and producer for other artists, and Inan Lima, the likeable Brazilian, who is not only a passionate singer and percussionist is, but already shared the stage with the likes of Joe Cocker, Zucchero, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. The cross-over concept of Vintage Vegas is characterized by unique arrangements and a specially compiled 18-member big band consisting of musicians from the SWR and WDR Big Band. With cover songs like “Only Man In The World”, “Don’t You Worry Child” or ” Hangover”, as well as their own compositions “Here I Am” and “For Once In My Life” is not just the typical swing-fans, but also the friends of good pop music will feel appealed to. Vintage Vegas will be for the Swing what “Dick Brave” is for Rockabilly and “Il Divo” for the Classic. With a giant tour as a part of „Holiday on Ice“, Vintage Vegas will travel throughout Germany in winter 14/15 and transform the arenas into a world of glitter, glamor and money.
