Queer stars straight from the BERLINALE. Documentaries about Peaches and Jürgen Baldiga in two of the 64th Krakow Film Festival competitions.

He’d be attending her concerts, and she’d probably end up being one of his muses. Strong, uncompromising artistic personalities, who have found their place to live, love, and create in Berlin’s underground scene. The legendary, controversial vocalist Peaches and the provocative chronicler of Berlin’s nooks and crannies, Jürgen Baldiga, are the subjects of two films showcased at the ongoing festival in Berlin, which will appear in two competitions at the Krakow Film Festival in late May." source PR February 20, 2024 #64KFF

Such bold, scandalous figures couldn’t afford sanitized portraits. Both TEACHES OF PEACHES by Philipp Fussenegger and Judy Landkammer – invited to the international DocFilmMusic competition – and a contender in the international documentary competition, BALDIGA – UNLOCKED HEART by  Markus Stein, are strong, provocative propositions aimed at adult audiences. Both titles can be found in the prestigious Panorama Dokumente section at this year’s BERLINALE.

 These have been the first german documentaries of the 64 KFF programme announced. Scroll down and stay tuned for more!
