Desire Will Set You Free

Synopsis: Desire Will Set You Free is a feature film that explores life in contemporary Berlin with an often critical and sometimes humorous eye. Based on a true story, the plot follows the relationship of an American writer of Israeli/Palestinian descent and a Russian aspiring artist working as a hustler, offering access to the city's vibrant queer and underground scenes while examining the differences between expatriate and refugee life.

Many original Berlin personalities play themselves and the locations are all real Berlin locations. The film features performances by the queen of punk Nina Hagen, electro star Peaches, Brooklyn's Blood Orange, German sensation Rummelsnuff, rapper Sookee, Einstürzende Neubauten's Blixa Bargeld;  and Wolfgang Müller, plus cast members Amber Benson (of Buffy the

so fucking amazing, right?

Do you wanna do some MDMA?

This is the bar they used to hang out in.

I love David Bowie.

I mean he's one of these

artists that like saw

into the future.

Do you know Jobriath and Klaus Nomi?

So good.

Do you want to go to the lake?

This weekend?

No, right now.

It's raining.

It'll be sunny by the time we get there.

I would love you

to use me amuse me

I'm chained to your insanity

Any day you could

buy me or tie me up

A slave to your perversity

Refuse me

Diffuse me

To the corners of the galaxy

And take me out

You'll take me out

Take me out

Take me out

You just amaze

me and daze me

You're the blind spot

in my consciousness

Come on and forsake

me and break me

And drink the blood

of my obsession

Make me cry out and

die out of love

For this world is fantasy

Refuse me

Diffuse me

To the corners of the galaxy

And take me out

Take me, take me out

Take me out

Take me out

No no no no don't

No no no give it to me

No no no no don't

No no no give it to me

Take me out oh

baby I'm ready

For your troubles

I'm expedient

You don't want

to stay for breakfast?

Sorry, I must go.

But thanks for last night.

It was fun, no?

Can I see you again?

Yeah, I'll text you.


I'm gonna make a coffee, okay?

Do you want one?


Well do you want one or not?

Whatever, I don't care.

Yes, I want coffee, thank you.



You wanna come over for breakfast?

It's 4 p.m.

Call it brunch and then you've got a deal.


I'm here, just come over whenever.

Okay bye.



Okay, everyone move

over for the breeders.

So we went to this party.

Some like Roman nightclub.

But then I got home and Jayne was pissed.

We had to f*ck in the bathroom

because she locked the bedroom door.
