Feiern shows them getting down – sweaty, dazed, deliriously happy. People who dedicate their lives to music, clubs and drugs talk about their experiences.They tell stories of self-destruction as well as tenderness. And every one of them is about the search for happiness: about that perfect moment of collective ecstasy, about the right record being played at the right time, about talking for eight hours to a complete stranger, who you adopt as your best friend – for the night. Or about how it feels to walk into a darkroom and become “a mere piece of meat, to be used and use others”. The conversations add up to the portrait of a family and make “Feiern” the melancholic homage to a subculture that continues to celebrate until, finally, a simple cough turns into pneumonia, and a blackout leads to psychosis. In Berlin, says Ewan Pearson, a DJ and producer from London, somebody could bang a wooden spoon on a saucepan- as long as you did it in time, nobody would go home. With a smile he advises his friends: “Don’t forget to go home!”. They might not. And rave on happily ever after.
