DIE TOTEN HOSEN - YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE (WEIL DU NUR EINMAL LEBST - DIE TOTEN HOSEN AUF TOUR)

DIE TOTEN HOSEN - YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE
© Avanti Media Fiction

The German (punk)rock band Die Toten Hosen is a phenomenon of superlatives. In this music & concert documentary Cordula Kablitz-Post accompanies the legendary and most successful German-speaking rock band – with 19 millions records sold since 1982 – on one of their biggest tours in band history, both in the limelight and backstage with “access all areas”. The result is an intimate portrait of the band, but also the documentation of a huge tour that resembles a rollercoaster of emotions: After celebrated concerts the abrupt stop due to the sudden hearing loss of singer Campino, doubts and new beginnings, the triumphant return in the band’s hometown stadium and at the end of the year the performance at their own "Hosen-Fest" in Buenos Aires. Multiple Grammy-nominated British music film director Paul Dugdale co-directed the concert recordings and is known for his work with the Rolling Stones and Coldplay among others.


Cordula Kablitz-Post studied German and English Literature and Theater Arts in Munich and Berlin, with an emphasis on film and television. She has written and directed numerous documentaries and artist’s portraits for the public broadcasters ARTE and ARD. In 1995 she founded the production company Avanti Media, which has since been awarded the Grimme Prize several times for the ARTE-documentary series INTO THE NIGHT WITH…. In 2001, she founded Avanti Media Fiction, through which she primarily produces and directs feature films and high-quality television and theatrical documentaries. The multi-awarded period movie IN LOVE WITH LOU – A PHILOSOPHER’S LIFE marked her feature debut.

Paul Dugdale is a multiple Grammy-nominated filmmaker based in London, where he studied at Central Saint Martins. His passion for music and film has led him to write and direct documentaries and concert films for some of the world's biggest artists including Taylor Swift, Adele, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Muse, Paul McCartney, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj and U2.
