Crime - visuals














Crime is heading your way!

Sissters' Mika Risiko and Scream Club's Sarah Adorable have teamed up for a new project that involves keyboards and floor toms and from here on you should discover for yourself what it is they are making.

Crime is gearing up for a European trek with Dischord´s E.D. Sedgwick in November/December and this is a taste of what you are about to see onstage:


Each song is set to feature an individual video to be projected on Mika and Sarah accompanying the music. Aside from me, clips were directed by Tom Ehrhardt and Mika; they feature actress Pau Pappel, film maker Ester Martin Bergsmark, dancer Prince William Morris and many more.

"This Party Blows" received its premiere in the shorts section of the Berlin Porn Film Festival in October and will kick off the release of some more music videos based on the visuals of the show.

If you have time, we strongly advise you to go see the concert.
Tour kicks off on November 23 at Berlin's Marie Antoinette.

YANGON CALLING - Punk in Myanmar












Title design and graphics for "Yangon Calling", a documentary about Punk in Myanmar/Burma by Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke.












YANGON CALLING - PUNK IN MYANMAR 
Music documentary / Berlin 2012
By Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke 

Punk in Myanmar – that is a provocation itself. After all, here in the former military dictatorship the probably most rebellious of all subcultures faces one of the world’s most authoritarian regimes. For young Burmese, punk is a way to stand up against a hated government. In their songs, they criticize the appalling living conditions in Myanmar and call for freedom and human rights. In the 90's, sailors brought the first punk rock cassettes into the isolated country. Since then a scene with several hundred followers has emerged in Yangon.












The film "Yangon Calling" introduces the main protagonists of the punk rock scene and shows their life in Myanmars's underground. During six weeks, the filmmakers Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke filmed secretly and without authorization in Yangon, using small cameras. They accompanied the punks to their homes and met their friends and families. They went along with them to work in the tailor shop and tattoo studio, to rehearsal rooms and secret illegal concerts. They spoke with punks who had sat in jail during the military dictatorship and saw them fight their frustration with heroin.












Yangon Calling is a film about life in an authoritarian state, about personal tragedy and the struggle for freedom in a country where punk is still true rebellion.












Check the article on Spiegel OnlineThe Guardian and Rolling Stone and come to the sneak preview of the movie on march 17th in Berlin or watch it on thursday 29th of march, 21:55 on ZDF Kultur!
