Last morning of Risiko

“Risiko” was a legendary bar/club in WestBerlin. A home & source of inspiration for a lot of us. This video shows impressions of the last morning before closing down in 86. It was filmed by Kloie Picot & me with my father’s Super8-camera — not enough light inside, so we captured the life at the entrance. The material was filmed-up again from a screen on VHS and edited also on VHS without effects or anything some weeks later. I was allowed to use the unfinished version ( the fantastic rough-mix!) of “Lost in Music” by Anita Lane & Mick Harvey, which I had on a cassette-tape at that time. What we see here is exactly this version from 86. Hardly ever shown it since…

At the end Nick Cave & Nikki Sudden are walking up the stairs to another club. Think it was somewhere at Adenauerplatz. Can’t remember the name of the club – nonrelevant.
The rooms & spaces of “Risiko” were used as a mosque since…
