The film The Discourse of the Drinkers by Annika Larsson is exploring the bar as a social and political space. Filmed in the queer bar The Club in Neukölln and in the 24h open bar Rote Rose at Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg in Berlin during a six-month period in 2017, it moves between documentation, fiction, observation, performance and dialogue. Through montage the two bars are merged into one, creating a performative and relational space for moving and instable bodies, identities and stories. Scenes of conversation intercut with a stage performance by the trash drag ensemble the Real Housewives of Neukölln, whose collective voice acts like as a chorus for the film, commenting on the said and unsaid.

Filmed, directed and edited by Annika Larsson.
Sound by Ewa Einhorn.
Additional Camera and Sound by Felix Roadskill, Isabel Gatzke and Carlos A Lopez.
