José M. Rodríguez, Clara Saiz, Juan Peralta - Spain – 2009 – 63’
The fans of the group become the stars in the Standstill show. An intense chronicle for thirty-somethings, lived through the pages of their rock manual, coloured balloons and a circular stage. Where the borders blur between musician and spectator. We’re gonna sing.
Jordi Fabregas, Joan Simó - Spain – 2012 – 55’
Two examples of an ambitious musical TV show that manages to reveal the soul of a musician through images. It goes by the name of 33 Revolucions, and its meticulous audiovisual language offers majestic views of Senior and Refree.
Ramon Tort - Spain – 2012 – 101’
A moving look at a beautiful (and successful) experiment. A music school forms a junior Big Band. Behind the endeavour is a dreamer, the dedicated director, Joan Chamorro. But each child is the star of this story of enthusiasm, teaching, and magnificent swing.
Xavier Puig, Raimon Fransoy - Spain – 2012 – 70’
Four minutes drum up the entire career of the ex Umpah-Pah. A dramatic full stop introduces the Puntí of today: shrewd, reflective, delirious, complex. On his street, playing in the town square, or getting worked up to speak. He’s never been this close.
Niall McCann - Ireland – 2012 – 70’
Failed pop star. The soul of The Auteurs and Black Box Recorder reconstructs the purgatory of his career in a hilarious testimony that craps all over every aspect of the pop music business. Irony, ideas, misanthropy, self-sabotage… Oh, and a shitload of dissing.
Special session @ Doc Alive (Nov 3rd): Screening + Luke Haines Live! (independents tickets)
Javier Paniagua, José San Cristóbal - Spain – 2012 – 95’
A heavy group of non-friends that triumphed. Where did it all go pear-shaped? Their reunion for the 30th anniversary tour exposes the schisms and summits, the typical Spanish cock-up, the fans (Bunbury, among them), the workerist stance and their anti-Movement character. Red or dead.
Michael Rapaport - United States – 2011 – 93’
¿Can I kick it? Yes you can! The full story – from desk to stardom – of the most charming hip-hop group. Questionable clothing, Native Tongues and oodles of good vibes, but also dissent and rupture. They all talk, from Qtip and Phife Dawg to the Jungle Brothers.
Eulàlia Domènech - Spain – 2012 – 60’
The director rightfully restores the memory of her great-grandmother, a forgotten lyrical singer of the pre-Civil War era. With sobriety and elegance, a story of exile, talent and love of music is extracted, co-starring Pau Casals, Montserrat Caballé and other greats.
Robert Bralver, David Ferino - United States – 2010 – 84’
A documentary about loss. The Morphine bassist seeks to bury the pain caused by the premature death of two of his brothers, when death creeps up and surprises him on stage. His life and tragedy are explained here in a manner as painful as his music.
William Miller - United States – 2012 – 90’
Model father or absent husband? Black sheep or prodigal son? Bobby Bare Jr., indie-rocker offspring of a country idol, lives it up on the road as much as he can, and as much as he can get away with. An honest and warm film that retraces the steep slope of rock and fatherhood.
D.A. Pennebaker - United States – 1967 – 96’
Hailed “the best music documentary of all time”. On tour around England with Bob Dylan in 1965 when the folk legend ascended to the status of pop icon. Less antisocial than usual, radiant and cool, this is the closest to Dylan that anyone has ever been.
Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin - United States – 1970 – 92’
The end of an era incarnates in the Rolling Stones’ tour of America, in 1969. Their tragic concert in Altamont administers the fatal blow to the innocence of the Sixties and inaugurates the spirit of a new decade. Utterly awesome images.
Julien Temple - United Kingdom – 2006 – 138’
35 years of the world’s most important festival. Temple captures Glastonbury with a thousand eyes and hundreds of hours of footage, without leaving a grain untouched. Fans, groups, mud: an out of this world film experience to immerse oneself in without getting (too) filthy.
Sunday 4th / 19:30h / Filmoteca de Catalunya (independent ticket)
Julien Temple - United Kingdom – 2012 – 76’
Step inside the other Glastonbury, a utopian hill where 21st Century tribes congregate in search of the commune-esque and radical Glasto of yesteryear. Techno, pyrotechnics, cybercrusty parades and social cohesion. The hippy heart of the festival throbs in this lost paradise.

Frank Scheffer - Germany, Netherlands – 2011 – 87’
“I’m going to make the impossible, possible”, or Mahler in the Persian world. The story of how director Nader Mashayekhi founded a classical music orchestra in Iran. His interrupted (and dangerous dream) becomes a film filled with poetry and change.
Kristin Björk Kristjánsdóttir, Orri Jónsson, Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir - Iceland – 2011 – 62’
A do-it-yourself Granny. M’lady Níelsdóttir has spent her 70s recording bizarre homemade naïf-pop records. Múm, Mugison and other Icelandic musicians praise her inspiration and tell her life story in a homely and detailed documentary - a perfectly cross-stitched memento.
János Zsombolyai - Canada, Hungary, United States – 2012 – 92’
Ok, so maybe Queen didn’t invent stadium cock-rcok, but as you can see here they did it large. Very effin’ large. 1986, 80,000 Hungarian fans, pyrotechnics a go-go, Freddie Mercury and rock riffs that would stop a train dead in its tracks. Saturday night fever.
Screening included in Marathon (31st to 1st night) / Aribau Club 1 / 01:30h
Bobbi Jo Hart - Canada – 2012 – 86’
Canadian child prodigy Marika Bournaki plays the piano like God, but is starting to rebel against expectations and family pressure. A raw ritual of rupture and disenchantment: from 12 to 20 years old, from girl to woman, and from genius to person.
Sam Jones - United States – 2002 – 93’
Spring 2000: Wilco goes into the studio to record its fourth album. A year later, the band is ditched by its label and loses two of its members. Welcome to a great chronicle of a turbulent chapter in the story of a brilliant band.
Josep Maria Salat, Roger Estrada - Spain – 2012 – 70’
Team, musicians, and directors (Pennebaker, Don Letts and Julien Temple, among other superstars), reflect on ten years of In-Edit’s existence and the passion that sustains it. More than a simple festival expressed here with viewer-and-fan-style warmth.
