THE WYDOKS STORY
November 1989: The Wall comes down – “Feeling B” frontman Aljoscha Rompe and friends occupy Schönhauser Allee 5 in the Berlin district Prenzlauer Berg. Various artists flock to this area in the then eastern part of Berlin. It became a place for visionaries in a time of massive change. The Wydoks Group was founded. An atelier, a recording studio, a film studio and the Wydoks Club arose and all found a home under the roof of Schönhauser Allee 5.
1999 saw many artists leave Schönhauser Allee 5 seeking fame and fortune. The Wydoks Filmstudio stayed. In these early days mainly documentaries were produced. Next to concert cuts from “Feeling B”, “Rammstein”, “Ganjaman & Junior Randy” and many other bands from the Berlin music scene, The Wydoks archive contents a huge range of documentary film footage about the German capital’s change, the melting pot of people and cultures and in general things of social concern, from the 1980th onwards.
