Director: Michael Stock, 1993, Germany, 89 min
Set soon after the reunification of West and East Germany, PRINZ IN HOLLELAND (PRINCE IN HELL) documents the crumbling alternative scene during this period. Focused on the disintegrating relationship between a political activist and a heroin addict, PRINCE IN HELL serves as a haunting snapshot of an anarchic gay reality that has been irretrievably lost. The score was created by Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten.
