Mission To Lars

Lars Ulrich is a Heavy Metal God with his own jumbo jet. Tom Spicer lives in a care home in Devon and has Fragile X Syndrome.
Tom has a dream, to meet his hero, to meet Lars. His siblings promise to make it happen, with hopes of good times and bonding.
But what starts out a dream soon becomes a nightmare as Tom’s disabilities, a dysfunctional family, and Heavy Metal’s

TENSION
25 Years Underground

Tension

Tension: 25 Years Underground chronicles the band's rise in popularity and how, even through several line-up changes, they
stuck to their guns and refused to bow to the demands of record companies. The film leaves you wondering what would have
happened to Tension if they had 'sold out' and made it big, and indeed the common notion of success itself. Marty Friedman
(Megadeth) and Tommy Gattis cut their teeth in this band, and the film opens a time capsule to reveal vintage video footage and
unbridled interviews on subjects like how the PMRC helped and hindered '80s heavy metal music, and how 'hair bands' of the
time commercialized the public perception of the genre.

AFRICAN DRUM
Beyond The Beat


african drum

'African Drum, Beyond the Beat' is an impressionist portrait of the various social functions of the drum in West African society.
The film uses a famous ode to the African drum to demonstrate its pervasive role in society over time. The drum's social
functions range from use in work songs, to communication and religious rituals, through to one of its more contemporary uses,
by fans at football games. 'African Drum, Beyond the Beat' takes a special interest in the conception and nature of rhythm and, in
dance, the inter-dependent relationship between the drummer and dancer by exploring the effects of drum rhythms on both. It
also looks at the different elements required for manufacturing a drum, from the physical to the social. The film ends with a
postulate that the democratic nature of African music, where instruments in an ensemble are equally important, makes it a
paradigm for the modern age compared to Western classical music, where strict hierarchical structures reflect
an outdated mechanistic view of the world.

EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN
LIEBESLIEDER

(courtesy of Klaus Maeck)

Liebeslieder

The undisputed originators of Industrial music are the German audio scientists Einstürzende Neubauten, led by the magnetic Blixa Bargeld (who also played guitar for Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds).
This in-depth documentary by Klaus Maeck and Johanna Schenkel takes a focused look at this highly innovative group (formed in the early ‘80s), using more than mere musical instruments to create sounds, from power drills and jackhammers, to scrap metal and vocal contortions they pushed the boundaries of conventional music to another dimension.
Includes interviews with all the members, and footage from across their career, with very rare early performances, as well as later shows.
This is the definitive documentary on a group that still remains an unparalleled genre unto themselves.
German with English subtitles.
