THE SOUNDS OF DOCS
"But you don't really care for music, do you?" sang Leonard Cohen with perversity in the famous "Hallelujah". At OFF CINEMA, on the contrary, a lot of attention is paid to music, not just film music. This year, we will be taken on a symphonic journey from reflections on the sound itself ("Oh It Hertz!"), through a study of one of the most recognisable songs of all time ("Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen") and a crazy, noisy and tragicomic biography of an American rock band ("Freakscene: Story of Dinosaur Jr."), to a concert uniting people in the film "David Byrne's American Utopia" by Spike Lee. The section dedicated to music documentaries will present the whole spectrum of this sub-genre and show how various forms of musical expression are captured in films.
