With the arrival of good weather comes the Poble Espanyol In-Edit, the International Musical Documentary Film Festival of Barcelona. Unique outdoor screenings to enjoy the first documentary jewels that make up the renowned Festival In-Edit schedule. Outdoor music and cinema... a perfect combination, don't you think?
You have two fantastic opportunities. On July 23rd, with the documentary New Order; Decades (2018) from the director Mike Christie. The past, present and future of legendary British electronic pop group New Order are in this film,which is half concert and half documentary.
On one hand, we witness the creative process and the coming-out of Bajo It Goes, a show that the group conceived in 2017 together with the visual artist Liam Gillick and for which they had a synthesised orchestra made up of twelve young music students. On the other - through interviews with the band and authorised voices such as the writer and journalist Jon Savage and graphic designer Peter Saville - the group's history and its electronic reinvention are reviewed after the suicide of singer Joy Division, Ian Curtis. We also see the cultural effervescence of Manchester that between the end of the 70s and the beginning of the 90s, was the epicenter of post-punk and dance music, thanks in large part to the Factory Records music label, legendary club The Haçienda and New Order themselves.
The second and last projection of the In-Edit festival at Poble Espanyol will take place on August 27th. John & Yoko: Above Us Only Sky (2018) will be the musical documentary that will close the festival's program. The definitive chronicle of the recording of the album "Imagine" is also an intimate portrait of the day to day life and the political awakening of Lennon with Yoko Ono.
"Above Us Only Sky" introduces us to John and Yoko in 1970, installed in their brand new Gregorian mansion in Tittenhurst Park (Ascot), far from London, from the press and the past Beatle. Organizing, contextualizing and dusting off the unpublished shots of the film "Imagine" and the documentary "Gimme Some Truth", the film tells in detail how they shaped their second and iconic album: from the construction of their private music studio for the creation of the songs by the hand of George Harrison, the producer Phil Spector and old comrades like Alan White or Klaus Voorman. Through a huge amount of archive material and the testimony of photographers, gardeners, journalists and personal assistants, it also narrates how John's life was, Yoko and his son Julian in the English countryside, as well as his political and pacifist activism awakening. An authentic jewel, even for the most informed "Beatlemaniacs".
