worlds away from society’s conventions and norms, Bar25 became the melting pot from which a truly Berlin culture emerged. fhe film follows the creators of Bar25, four young individuals whose freewheeling way of life, of music, individuality and never ending energy transforms a riverside wasteland into a fantasy land by the river Spree. but if the community’s life appears fulfilling from the outside, living it day after day isn’t easy. Bar 25 is a wonderland-night-and-day-club in Berlin, an enchanted adventure playground where adults become children again.
the film investigates the ambivalence of the community, of these so-called ‘business hippies’, questioning whether their form of living is valuable and authentic or if their hedonistic never-ending parties are a mere form of escapism.
