17 years of misery - 17 years behind the iron curtain - 17 years growing up in East Berlin.
The communist house of horror was feared by many. 1989 this barbaric structure collapsed with 180.000 full time secret agents out of a job and 600.000 unofficial informants to be revealed.
What if one man accidentally had access to classified information that no one wanted to ever see again? Information that could ruin the life of thousands of former Stasi agents and their families? Information that could reveal uncomfortable connections between east and west.
How far would you go to destroy your arch enemies?

How Beat Street Changed My Life
Coming in 2019
1985 - Beat Street was the first and only Hip Hop Movie shown in Theatres in East Berlin. The Government intended to showcase how capitalism oppresses minorities with little hope for their future. This movie created an unseen movement of Hip Hop culture behind the iron curtain. Mums sewing trousers out of garments to imitate what we watched on screen - improvised but original. Stasi and Police unsure how to deal with this improvisation and secret break dance competitions. For us - it was an inspiration on life, ironically we were also oppressed by our communist government.
