this is not berlin review

In This Is Not Berlin, a group of truant artists discuss what makes art. “Whether you like it or not, art is political, man!” one declares. But another responds, “Art is whatever means one thing to us today.”

This Is Not Berlin is a movie that lives in the moment, despite being set in a time and place that is rife with political unrest. Set in Mexico City in 1986, This Is Not Berlin is a vibrant, alive, and dirty snapshot of a Mexican counterculture that we know little of, and that the movie doesn’t much care to explain. Director Hari Sama is not here to give you a history lesson, but to recapture the era’s crumbling hedonism in a film that is about politics and not about politics at all.
