Between Berlin’s past and a dystopian future, Juri Padel’s pulsating meditation on Berlin’s club scene in the times of the pandemic finds cinematic access to the fourth dimension. An inexplicable rift runs through Berlin dividing the city in two. When Billie disappears between these worlds her friend Marion who gets help by former activist and hacker Blue tries to follow her digital trail which seems to disappear somewhere in the crack. But the closer they get to Billie the deeper they penetrate into the marginal deviation of reality. »Junk Space Berlin« is mindfuck at its best. Smart, suggestive and full of subversive energy. Trainspotting meets Shakespeare in a Berlin whose division exists only in people‘s minds and is therefore all the more threatening and present.
