Simon and the Diamonds (Soul / Funk / Blues / Rock)

The band SIMON AND THE DIAMONDS are ten musicians from Darmstadt, who approach soul on different paths since 2019 - funk, blues and rock are the stations on this path. The band is recruited from well-known bands of the Hessian music scene (including Bad Sugar Rush, Cliffsight, Dann Wohl Sophie, Lucid Void, Skaallüren).

The goal from the beginning was to approach the subject of soul with fun and experimentation. The result is a very unique reading and the various influences are noticeable.

Hamburger Gitter

The G-20 Summit as a Showcase of Modern Policing.

In the course of worldwide protests against capitalist distribution struggles and environmental catastrophes, state repression against protests for a different world order is also intensifying. In Germany, too, police violence and state arbitrariness against left-wing activist groups are on the rise. We are showing a documentary about police work at the 2017 G20 Summit in Hamburg, so as not to forget that basic democratic rights such as freedom of demonstration and freedom of the press are also increasingly under attack in this country. The film was produced by freelance journalists and filmmakers. Representatives from research, the judiciary, journalism and activism were interviewed.
