17-year-old best friends Carlos and Gera have their minds blown when the latter’s hip older sister introduces them to the Aztec: A legendary nightclub dedicated to transgressive music, sex, drugs and politics. Stylish and brimming with youthful energy, THIS IS NOT BERLIN is a neon-shimmering post-punk odyssey through the dancefloors, dive bars, avant-garde galleries and street protests of 1980’s Mexico City. This is an exceptionally engaging coming-of-age-drama set against the backdrop of the 1986 World Cup.
