Radio On covers the monthly poetry evenings from Curious Fox bookstore in Berlin. Listeners can witness a hearty audience, that greets every poet with loud bangs and cheers. The evenings are always packed. There must be something about that bookstore that made it become a haven to Berlin’s expats. In the documentary you hear voices. Normally it comes with images. The real image can only be seen and felt in the bookshop itself. As an alternative you might take a book, open it, listen and start dreaming.
The blurb and credits say
A secondhand English bookshop in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district comes to life to tell itâ€™s own story – the debates, the loves, the fights, the sex-changes. An alternative documentary about this shop’s vibrant community.
