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. Our characters travel through Berlin's layered history and unique subcultural landscape; on their adventures they discover influences and remnants of the Weimar Republic, WWII, the Bowie years, and punk. 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

What the f*ck?

That joint was supposed to go to me.

What, instead it went to

little Darby Crash over there?

He was cute enough.

We'll see about that.

Can I borrow that?

He wasn't.

You didn't get a chance to look at him.

He's my type.

You're like my little sister,

only she likes guys who look rich.

Men in suits, really boring men in suits.

I want a rebel, like a

guy you meet at a protest,

maybe the one holding

the Molotov cocktails.

You think guys that

look like that are rebels?

That jerk and you probably

have no common ground.

You're ready to f*ck him

because of his jacket

and his patches.

So this little f*ck over

there probably has some

overprotective investment banker father

and you would get bored of

him as soon as his clothes

were lying on your floor and you'd realize

he wasn't the little rebel

you were looking for.

Do we need to talk about murder

to get your attention?

What do you think I'm a f*cking killer?

Really Cat?

It's fashion.

Chill out.

More like fascism.

So what?

Siouxie Sioux is punk.

Actually it's for Sophie Scholl.

I swear I saw that daddy

in Schoenberg last week.

But I don't know, they all look the same.

What were you doing in Schoenberg?

I was buying a strap-on.

That neighborhood's really great, though.

Why, so you can check

out the leather daddies?

No, because it's one of

the oldest gay neighborhoods

in the world.

Christopher Isherwood wrote about it,

the nightclub El Dorado since 1920s.

The smell of poppers

floats down the sidewalk.

Plus there's all these great sex shops.

And you fags don't even know about it?

It always just seemed so far away.

True, but the hustler

bars are great.

And what is it, Tuesday?

Nothing else is going on.

We should go, like, right now.

She's a pretty girl but

She doesn't have

a f*cking clue

What to do

I mean, it was kinda funny.

You wanna know what she said?

Who has something nice to say about me?

She said you were a Nazi

with a fag on either side.

Great, just like this f*cking guy.

Let's go, guys.

Hi man.

It's only for men now.

What?

Men only.

This is wack.

This is misogyny.

This is women-hating.

This is sexism.

Hey, mens only.

This is the patriarchal

system out of f*cking control.

Catherine, let's just...

No, forget it.

Look.

I'm more of a man than

any of these little fags.

And I probably have a bigger dick, too.

You wanna see it?

Everyone just always

talks about your titties.

Now who's gonna touch my penis?

Is that a Schimpfwort?

Give it a few years.

I get a little uncomfortable

everybody's staring at us.

Is it your boyfriend?

No.

No?

Fags.

So how long have you

been working here for?

Two months.

Yeah?

Catherine's so crazy.

We are not gay.

Sure you are.

What are you doing here?

Working.

Yeah?

Mm hmm.

Fags work too.

Sometimes.

But what are you doing here?

I'm a whore too.

I was practically born a whore.

Wanna see my wife?

Why would I want to see your wife?

Look, my daughter.

Nice.

Really nice.

You have children?

No.

You want children?

Nice perfume.

Very fruity.

Hey.

Yeah?

Okay, we're gonna leave.

You guys are leaving.

Yes.

Together?

Yes.

Are you sure?

Have a good night, okay?

Okay.

Okay, bye.

Bye.

Hey.

Hi.

Can I get you a drink?

Sure, I'll take a Radler.

You from Berlin?

No, I'm from Russia.

Things are not so good

there for queers though, huh?

No, not so good.

But probably not as bad as you think.

I mean I was so moved by

the whole Pussy Riot thing

and that guy, Danke Shoen,

the guy that nailed his balls

to the ground in front of the Kremlin,
