Berghain bouncer Sven Marquardt is the subject of a new documentary along with another of the club's 'deciders', Smiley Baldwin, and Frank Künster, who worked a similar role at the sorely-missed Delicious Donuts during the 1990s, and more latterly King Size.
The film, logically entitled 'Berlin Bouncer' and directed by David Dietl, tells the story of all three men, stretching from the 1980s to today, showing their move into and up through the ranks of the German capital's nocturnal communities. Basti Schwarz, of Tiefschwarz, has been placed in charge of the soundtrack.
Those interested in catching it will need to be in the city for the annual Berlinale, where screenings will take place on 10th, 11th and 12th February, before it goes on wider release in April. One month later 'Beats' arrives, a new feature film set in the UK rave scene of the 1990s, and if none of these appeal and you prefer staying at home check out our list of 10 music documentaries worth watching on Netflix.
