The music documentary festival celebrates its 11th edition from the 24th of October to the 3rd of November
In-Edit is here again. The illustrious festival of music documentary film celebrates its 11th edition this year and, between the 24th of October and the 3rd of November, will be screening about fifty films divided between the Aribau Club cinemas and cinema number 5 of the Aribau Multicines, the biggest and best known. Most of the films will be shown more than once to give spectators the opportunity to reschedule their timetables.
As with every year, some of the films are concerned with the careers of artists who, to a greater or lesser degree, will be familiar to music lovers, while others approach their musical subjects from more transversal perspectives.
While the extend of the programme makes it difficult to highlight any particular film, or films, within the first of the groups mentioned above we can include, for example The National (Mistaken For Strangers), Joe Meek (A Life in the Death of Joe Meek), Bill Callahan (Apocalypse), Big Star (Nothing Can Hurt Me) and La Pegatina (La Pegatina -El Documental).
In the second group there is an examination of the file interchange network, Napster (Downloaded), the adaptation of Teenage, the treatise by Jon Savage dealing with the fervour of youth culture during the first half of the 20th century, or a perspective on the rise of electronic music club Nitsa, 2Nitsa 94/96: el giro electrónico
As usual there will be retrospectives of directors with extensive careers and this year’s edition is dedicated to Disk Fontaine and the recently departed Les Blank, with four films by the former and three by the latter.
