In the lost years between Out of the Blue and Blue Velvet, an unhinged Dennis Hopper starred in this wildly unknown downfall tale, White Star. Hopper gives a terrifying, coke-infused and heavily improvised performance as seedy concert promoter Ken Barlow, whose claim to fame is being the Rolling Stones’ tour manager. Barlow aims to get his new synth-punk protege Moody to the top of the charts - by any means necessary. Set in the musical underground of West Berlin, Klick’s White Star paints the divided city awash with subcultural dwellers - punks, squatters, musicians and late-night revellers. Presentation made possible by the cultural assistance of the Goethe Institute of San Francisco.

"The emotionally most demanding film I've ever made, and therefore the most dangerous one - for me." - Dennis Hopper
