Buy Buy St. Pauli

Buy Buy St. Pauli

The ESSO-Buildings in Hamburg have become a symbol for gentrification and the resistance against it. Today, the houses are gone. Knocked down. Also gone are the name-giving petrol station, the music clubs, the motel, and the tenants – in short: many places and people that shaped the face of St. Pauli. But the protestors’ achievement remains, the tenants now know how to exercise their rights and insist to have a say in the development of the site.

Irene Bude and Olaf Sobczak are German documentary filmmakers from Hamburg. Over the past years, they have collaborated on various film projects. Since 2008, Bude and Sobczak have worked with Steffen Jörg, who is also the producer of their most recent works. // Films (selection): CALEDONIA DREAMING (1997, short doc), ALLES MUSS RAUS! (1999, doc), NICHTS IST MEHR SICHER! (2001, short doc), MUSIK DER MITTE (2003, short doc), EMPIRE ST. PAULI – VON PERLENKETTEN UND PLATZVERWEISEN (2009, doc; CE '10), BUY BUY ST. PAULI (2014, doc)
