  • Germany 2019; 87 min

BERLIN BOUNCER tells the story of Berlin, from a parted city to the party metropolis of today, through the eyes of its most legendary Doormen. Frank Künster came in the 1980’s to study in Berlin while Smiley Baldwin was still guarding the wall as an American GI. Behind the wall lived Sven Marquardt, a young punk and photographer. When the Wall came down, nightlife took control over their lives. Until today they play a decisive role in the reunited city’s never ending nights as the most famous bouncers of Berlin’s popular clubs.
