Tear Down This Wall
Logline: The “two Berlins” – one free, the other a “prison camp of the mind and soul” – highlight the corruption of the East, against the freedom of the West, the days before a three day rock-n-roll concert series and Reagan’s historic “Tear Down the Wall” speech.
Concept: The power of rock-in-roll breaks the tension of the Cold War era as David Bowie, The Eurythmics, and Genesis perform in a three-day rock-n-roll concert series, showing how the power of music unified the East and West sides of the Berlin Wall. Peter Schwenkow, the original concert promotor, is interested in organizing a benefit concert to go along with the release of “Tear Down This Wall.”
