PORTLAND GERMAN FILM FESTIVAL – Monthly Film Series presents WILD HEART

The actor Charly Hübner’s film portrays the singer of the Punkband „Feine Sahne Fischfilet“ (‘Fine Cream Fish Filet‘) from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Jan ʹMonchiʹ Gorkow speaks of his work against racism, sexism and homophobia, his personal development – and the shift to the right in the east. Outing in Mecklenburg: during the election year of 2016 the band stands up against the right wing scene on their tour ‘Noch Nicht Komplett im Arschʹ (Not yet totally messed up). Dozens of hate letters is just the beginning of what the musicians and their frontman have to put up with – for years they were kept a watch of by the constitutional protection body due to their ‘anti-state behaviourʹ and were deemed the ‘most dangerous bandʹ in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Parallell to this, Gorkow speaks of his time as an Ultra for Hansa Rostock, of violent encounters and his gradual politicisation. Charly Hübner’s documentation reveals a state between fury and resistance and was awarded four prizes at the Leipzig International Documentary Festival.
