The three-part series Godfathers of St. Pauli / Die Paten von St. Pauli
will premiere April 7 at 8:15 pm on arte. What it is about:
In the 1960s, 70s and 80s, ”Lamborghini-Klaus”, “Karate Tommy” and “Beautiful Mischa” dominate, amongst others, the business with prostitutes on the "most sinful street of the world". Their fight is real, their business brutal and bloody. There was hardly any scrutinizing of how dirty the business of these men actually was. Even the police turned a blind eye to what was happening - until disaster struck and the reign of the Kings of St. Pauli hit a dead end. We reconstruct the rise of the pimp gangs and relive their golden days until drugs and violence began to rule their everyday life. A serial killer haunts the Reeperbahn and the police finally starts to act. With a shooting in the police headquarters, the reign of pimps brutally comes to an end. Dive deeply into this almost forgotten, captivating and suspenseful world of pimps and whores, of sex, drugs and violence.Detailed broadcasting dates:
