PANTALEON Films and MySpass Audio present the theme song to the cinematic film DIE GESCHICHTE DER MENSCHHEIT – LEICHT GEKÜRZT

Munich, June 10, 2022. DIE GESCHICHTE DER MENSCHHEIT - LEICHT GEKÜRZT will be released in cinemas on June 16, but already today PANTALEON Films, a wholly owned film production subsidiary of PANTAFLIX AG (GSIN: A12UPJ, ISIN: DE000A12UPJ7), and MySpass Audio, a label of BANIJAY Live Artist Brand GmbH, present the title song to the film. Christoph Maria Herbst, Carolin Kebekus, Bastian Pastewka, Max Giermann and many other prominent A-list actors of the German comedy and acting scene perform the title song "Die Party ist vorbei (Bye-Bye)".

Director Erik Haffner gathered the entire cast for the end credit and story point song in the recording studio and thus provided the appropriate background music, which fits perfectly into the film and will be remembered by the audience. Written by KASALLA guitarist and founding member Flo Peil (Maite Kelly, Mandy Capristo, Sandy Mölling (No Angels), Roger Cicero, Bela B. (Die Ärzte), Bläck Fööss, and many more), star songwriter Claudio Pagonis (Stefanie Heinzmann, Lionel Richie, Roger Cicero, Max Mutzke, Justin Bieber, Marla Glen, No Angels, Maite Kelly, and many more), Sebastian Schubert (chamber music album for the Beethoven anniversary 2020, band Kellerkommando, and many more) and the head writer of the film Chris Geletneky (Sketch History, Pastewka, Ladykracher; guitarist of the Cologne bands De Imis and Beer Bitches), a song was created that convinces with its catchiness and at the same time wants to draw attention to the drastic consequences of climate change with a clear message.

"We are very proud of DIE GESCHICHTE DER MENSCHHEIT – LEICHT GEKÜRZT and are already very much looking forward to the theatrical release. With the title song "Die Party ist vorbei (Bye-Bye)" we have a great first impression for the cinema audience. We don't just want to provide entertainment with the song, which also underscores the great teamwork on the set in the credits, among other things. It was and still is important to us to draw attention to essential social issues such as climate change," says Patrick Zorer, Managing Director of PANTALEON Films.


In order to leave a lasting impression in space, Dr Georg Friedle (Christoph Maria Herbst) and his team of researchers enclose a condensed version of world history with the Voyager mission in 1977. However, their attempt to present themselves as an intelligent and empathic race backfires uncontrollably: their version presents a completely insane species whose development is apparently based on pure luck instead of solid intellect. A planet where Greek philosophers are celebrated as rap stars, religion is touted as a clever marketing concept, bachelor parties serve as a secret weapon in World War I, or the construction of the Great Wall of China is a misunderstanding of honest Berlin craftsmanship. Even the revelation of the allegedly true background of Hitler's assassination should lead experienced historians to consider the end of mankind as a mere question of time.

The spoof, co-produced by PANTALEON Films with Gerda Film Produktion, Warner Bros. Film Productions Germany and Brainpool TV, will be released in German cinemas on June 16, 2022.
