How does Ricardo Villalobos, internationally one of the most acclaimed DJs of electronic music, think? How does he hear? How do Herbert von Karajan and Mussorgsky’s horns end up in the studio of this Chilean musician from Darmstadt, Germany? What happens inside his machines and modules long after they are switched off? How do people react to his art of DJ-ing at Berlin’s famous club Berghain, the temple of techno? What do people expect for their money when they go to the international stages of Ibiza? Do we actually have more sex than our parents? And how do we handle the power of our luck?

After his films 196 BPM (Berlinale 2003) and BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE WIDE BLUE SEA (Locarno 2005), VILLALOBOS is the last part of a free trilogy about aspects of electronic music and club culture in the first decade of our new century. Together with his films DENK ICH AN DEUTSCHLAND IN DER NACHT (Berlinale 2017) and THE DISSIDENTS – KIRSTEN KRÜGER / KITKATCLUB BERLIN (Aarhus European Cultural City 2017), of which the second one is part of the exibition No Photos On The Dance Floor! Berlin 1989–Today, the trilogy became a “club quintet”.

The screening is followed by a talk with Ricardo Viallobos and Romuald Karmakar and will be moderated by Felix Denk, author of “Der Klang der Familie”.
