This week, between 7 and 10 pm, you can see a historical curiosity screening in our front window: Bambule, a film with a script written by Ulrike Meinhof. It was originally meant to be screened on German television in 1970, but by the time it was completed, the screenwriter was wanted by authorities in the prison break of Andreas Baader, and the film was shelved, not seen by the public until almost 20 years later. The “Baader-Meinhof gang” as it was known in the english-speaking media (or “Rote Armee Fraktion” as they called themselves) was an urban guerilla group active until 1998.

You can watch Bambule in the window of 15 E Pender Street every evening until we move out, or you can see it here:
