Ode To Cologne (Viel passiert - Der BAP Film)

Ode To Cologne
Wim Wenders, Marie Bauemer, Wolfgang Niedecken (photo © Screenworks Cologne GmbH

Wenders and Niedecken: the internationally renowned filmmaker and the successful rock musician got together to make a rock 'n' roll film that breaks all conventions. A gripping collage of current concert recordings and
rare archive photos, enhanced by Niedecken's unique texts and commentaries, as well as guest appearances by Wolf Biermann, Marie Baeumer, Joachim Król and the rock band Anger 77 - a fascinating portrait of a band that even after 20 years of "Cologne rock" is still at the top. Ode to Cologne is a special kind of music film, one that will excite not only BAP fans.
